WHO IS IT FOR?
Women with talent and passion for entrepreneurship in the agrifood sector
According to a June 2020 study commissioned by the European Union, entrepreneurship is a key driver of innovation and growth across society.
While Europe is making steady progress towards these principles, women remain underrepresented and underfunded, even as an increasing number of European citizens express the desire to launch their own businesses.
In Europe, only around 30% of women account top positions in agricultural and livestock farms in the European Union, with a remarkable low rate amongst women from RIS regions.
EIT Food’s objective is to “future proof” the food system, which includes building an inclusive and innovative community to “foster innovation at all stages of business creation”. Part of EIT Food’s inclusivity goals include supporting female entrepreneurs through education, network building, and dedicated programme resources- that is EWA- Empowering Women in Agrifood mission
