Did you know that female startups founders are a minority in Europe? Even though they represent more than half of the population, women account for less than a third of entrepreneurs. INNOVEIT BILBAO: Women Entrepreneurship & Leadership will be a celebration of women, featuring leading entrepreneurs delivering high impact innovations and representing unique knowledge and expertise.
The EIT community is proud to be home to a thriving community of women innovators, entrepreneurs and students forging a more inclusive and diverse network of innovation for Europe and beyond. Get to discover our new and improved Women Leadership & Entrepreneurship programme and find out how you can get involved! This event has the objective of sharing insights on tackling gender division and promoting women entrepreneurship within Europe and beyond!

- Explore the reasons behind the gender breach in women entrepreneurship and finance and its impact in terms of equality and innovation.
