Womenalia startup day
The network group for women, Womenalia, recently in March held a start-up competition in Barcelona at the eShow feria. They've produced a video that includes interviews of the top ten taking part, and for those who speak Spanish, it's very interesting listening to their answers.
Questions asked included
"Why did you decide to launch your own business?"
"Is there sufficient help for new entrepreneurs?"
"Is it more difficult for a woman to launch a business?"
"What advice would you give to other women entrepreneurs?"
