Women Entrepreneurship Bootcamp


The Women Entrepreneurship Bootcamp connects high growth, women-led or co-led start-ups to an unparalleled network of investors and mentors – helping nurture and support rapid growth.

We’ll help you leverage the diversity in your leadership team to achieve the best possible outcomes for your start-up. And this programme will also help you find the reference points you need to successfully frame your ambition and attract more investment.

The Women Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is a seven-week programme – providing intensive training, mentoring and networking opportunities in Galway (Ireland), Coimbra (Portugal), Barcelona (Spain) and London (UK). During this time, you’ll participate in two pitch events and enjoy significant one-to-one face time with investors.
