THE FIRST IFEMPOWER CENTRE IN AUSTRIA

There are still very few women in leadership positions. Women are also underrepresented among entrepreneurs. Even though women and men are equally represented among university students, in some areas women even outnumber men, they rarely make it to C-level.
Our aim is to inspire, to motivate, to empower and make entrepreneurship a life perspective for all.
We provide evidence-based solutions. Having interviewed entrepreneurs in 7 European countries, mapped existing supporting programmes and learnt from various stakeholders we put together a complex programme, which can enable young women at universities to create a great business all the way from the first idea to commercial viability.
