Launch of the WEstart Database

[Brussels, 24 September 2015]

We are delighted to announce that the WEstart project has created a terrific resource for connecting with, and learning about, women social entrepreneurs in Europe.

In the form of a website, this resource is the first database of women-led social enterprises in Europe.

WEstart Database
The WEstart Database contains information about 1,000 women-led social enterprises in 10 EU countries: Bulgaria, France, Hungary, Germany, Lithuania, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. Search by country, browse by sector, or find a specific woman-led social enterprise.


Looking for advice, best-practice, or for women social entrepreneurs working on similar topics in different countries? Use the Database to reach out and get in touch!

WEstart Resources
The website enables you to also access and download the WEstart Synthesis report and the 10 National mini-reports.
