Entrepreneurs are the backbone of the economy, and those who create wealth and employment. Besides employment, entrepreneurship is an excellent opportunity for women to contribute to the economy and achieve economic autonomy (leading to a better social cohesion). Considering the high unemployment rates in certain European countries and especially Greece (26,8% in October 2012), entrepreneurship is not only an opportunity but the only alternative to economic uncertainty. The "Female Entrepreneurship Support Network – FEM.EN.S." project seeks for ways to promote female entrepreneurship in male dominated sectors of Economy.
