We have great women who have built successful startups in Turkey and also in the world. But we want it to be more. We want women create greater startups so the statistics like “only 17% of entrepreneurs are women in the world” can change. Accelerators and corporates actually should be the main supporters of women entrepreneurs and every woman who is trying to initiate a startup. By this way, women entrepreneurs can succeed more and empower other women and girls to become game changers, innovators, entrepreneurs…
For this, EU has a funding program for women innovators and entrepreneurs. This program takes place every year. Thanks to this program and the EU Prize at the end, women who have found their own enterprises and brought innovation to market can apply and become game changers. One of the conditions to apply to the program is that you should be living in one of the EU countries or countries associated to Horizon 2020.
4 women entrepreneurs will be rewarded in total. The prize is cash: 3 prizes of €100,000 for each winner. There is also the Rising Innovator prize of €50,000 for women aged 35 or younger. There is an application guide on the website. You should check it out because it will be helpful when you apply.
Last date for application is January 16th. Do not miss!
