MASTERCLASS 2019

Striving to inspire and help other digital women entrepreneurs and to ensure that women of the region have a seat and a voice at the policymaking table for a more inclusive digital economy, we gathered around 50 women entrepreneurs from the Western Balkans.

The Masterclass was the perfect opportunity for the participants to network with other women from the region, share their journeys and e-businesses among each other, learn important new things from experienced and proven speakers and of course have fun while doing so.
