Join Accenture and WEConnect International for a business networking event for women-owned businesses in Germany

Accenture, a WEConnect International corporate member, would like to invite you to participate in an event for women-owned businesses in Germany. The event is aimed at majority women-owned businesses - those that are minimum 51% owned by one or more women – and would be of most interest to businesses operating in the corporate and B2B sectors. The event is also open to women-owned businesses from other countries who can provide their products and services in the German market.

Accenture is inclined to create a more inclusive digital world. They work with several membership organisations, including WEConnect International, to unlock opportunities for diverse businesses around the world.

During the event, several speakers will share best practices and you will have the opportunity to network with procurement professionals from several WEConnect International corporate members as well as with VdU, WEConnect International’s certification partner in Germany. You will also have the chance to present a short pitch of your business to help other (corporate) attendees to connect your business with potential opportunities.

The event will be presented in a mix of German and English.
