The Federal Holding and Investment Company (SFPI-FPIM) and the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts (KVAB) kindly invite you to a symposium on gender, entrepreneurship and financing. Despite promising trends, women are still heavily underrepresented in the high-tech startup scene. Gender disparities persist, with women-led companies continuing to account for a small portion of deal flow and overall invested capital. Even more, the COVID-19 pandemic likely had a disproportionate impact on women’s economic situation. This makes gender smart investing and increasing female participation in innovative entrepreneurship a policy priority at the local, national and global level.
June 10th, 2021, 15h30 – 17h30. Online.
Speakers: Alexander De Croo (Prime minister), Hilde Crevits (minister), Sophie Manigart (Vlerick Business School)& Ghent University , Katja Bringmann (Ghent University), among others
