    What is WSC Europe about?

    We empower women to thrive in the business world.

    WSC acts as a catalyst enabling gender diverse startups to spring their business at the vulnerable early stage of inception, through the crucial seed investment until reaching market maturity.

     

    Mission statement:

    WSC’s mission is to foster entrepreneurial mindset amongst women, encourage innovation, empower female entrepreneurs, promote a gender diverse company culture, and to increase the ratio of women in leadership roles.

     

    We organize an international competition for gender diverse startups to be held in most European countries, some main cities in the US, China and Israel in 2018, but we are eager to take over the world!

     

    Our ultimate goal is to create an interactive worldwide community of women entrepreneurial role models.
