EIT co-hosts Women Entrepreneurship Workshop with JA Hungary
On 16 November, the EIT, in cooperation with JA (Junior Achievement) Hungary, held a workshop for girls in local Hungarian schools on the topic of women entrepreneurship and leadership.
Taking place at EIT Headquarters, over 40 students aged between 12 and 18 took part in an afternoon of presentations and discussions on how to promote women entrepreneurship in Hungary. Local speakers were invited to provide the participants with some inspirational success stories.
The speakers were:
- Lili Vetlényi-Lantos
- Lili is a young entrepreneur from Hungary who has recently set up her own fashion and design company, based in the centre of Budapest. - Hababa Design. She explained the challenges she faced by being both a young mother and aspiring entrepreneur.
- Orsolya Nemes
- Orsolya was another local entrepreneur who had recently moved into the creative industry, she is now working as a pitching trainer in Budapest.
- Klára Tatár-Kiss
- Klára currently works in the Hungarian banking sector. She explained to the participants her own experiences of being an entrepreneur. Her key message was that while you may need a specific set of skills to be a successful entrepreneur, everyone has to find their own unique path.
Following the presentations the audience was invited to pose their own questions to each speaker.
The event was the last of the 2017 series of workshops and activities developed by the EIT in partnership with JA Europe.
The EIT would like to once again thank JA Europe for its commitment in the past year. The successful series of workshops have been held in Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria this year, and the EIT looks forward to continued cooperation with JA Europe next year.
