About the product
In Europe women become entrepreneurs on average twice less often than men. The UNECE Programme on Women’s Entrepreneurship aims at raising awareness of problems of women entrepreneurs by enhancing dialogue and promoting the exchange of best practices and recommending policies. This study includes select papers adopted from the First Forum of Women Entrepreneurs and meeting of the Team of Specialists on Women’s Entrepreneurship held in October 2001. The study has three parts. Part one presents a regional overview of the situation and problems of women entrepreneurs. Part two includes country experiences. And the final part discusses the importance of networks and the benefits of connecting women-run enterprises to the global digital economy.
