The second edition of the Enterprising Women Lab will take place on Saturday 20 November, an event dedicated to female entrepreneurs and organised by Culturàlia.
The Enterprising Women Lab has a two-fold core. On the one hand, it aims to demonstrate the role of women in any field, and on the other, it seeks to provide inspiration through the experiences of six great women who will explain how they have made their lives successful.
Finally, the workshop will offer strategies and tips in various areas to help entrepreneurs and guarantee the success of their projects. At the Enterprising Women Lab, we understand entrepreneurs not just as businesspeople, but rather as people with the desire to keep moving forward with their projects regardless of their nature (social causes, culture, sports, etc.).
The event, which will be held in the Event Hall of the Escaldes-Engordany Town Hall, will start at 9:30 am with the opening act, attended by Minister Judith Pallarés; General Councillor Rosa Gili; Marc Cornella, Head of Personnel Management and Member of Vall Banc’s Committee on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion; and Lara de Miguel. This will be followed by talks by Marta Marsà (businesswoman), Rebeca Roger and Jael Pozo (veterinarians), Anna Pauner (publisher), Xary Rodríguez (cyclist) and Marta Alberch (social promoter). In the afternoon, at 4:00 pm, there will be an open workshop, with prior registration required, dedicated to answering any questions those who want to start their own business may have. The event enjoys the support of the Government of Andorra and the sponsorship of Vall Banc, as well as the collaboration of various companies in the country which share the values of the event.
The presentation of the event took place this morning at the Vall Banc headquarters, with the participation of Marc Cornella, Head of Personnel Management and a member of Vall Banc’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, together with Lara De Miguel, promoter of the Enterprising Women Lab.
Cornella emphasised that “We identify with many of the event’s goals, such as encouraging entrepreneurship and the bringing together of experiences to encourage personal and labour-related growth; but we also want to support the 50% of the population who, for the mere fact of being women, have to face obstacles in their professional careers.” As for Lara De Miguel, she explained that “we are promoting this project with the desire to inspire, provide ideas, share experiences and provide tools for female entrepreneurship, so that everyone who wants to set up a project has a source of inspiration, knowledge and a space to create synergies and network, regardless of whether it is a business, social, cultural or sports-based project.”
