The Inauguration Conference of the European Network of Mentors for Women Entrepreneurs will take place on 15 November in Warsaw, Poland. The conference is being organised jointly by the European Commission and the Polish Presidency of the European Union.
The European Network of Mentors for Women Entrepreneurs is one of the actions proposed in the 2011 Review of the European Small Business Act and aims at promoting female entrepreneurship in Europe.

The Mentors Network will provide advice and support to women entrepreneurs on the start-up, running and growth of their enterprises in the early stages of the business.
