Relevant Eurostat’s report on entrepreneurship (2019) and “Women’s Economic Empowerment” (2016) report provides strong evidence that there is an uneven share in terms of the number of female business owners, the size of women-owned businesses, and their access to economic resources. Women’s economic empowerment one of the major cornerstone of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and an “under-exploited source of economic growth and jobs that should be further developed”. Although many prominent women have contributed to all fields of business and Entrepreneurship, very few, are known and popular to the young girls and women or even to their trainers, teachers or educators. “FLYie” project is designed to bring out the significant role of women in Entrepreneurship By using an innovative approach like role-model game-based education and enhancing the accessing girls to successful role models.
During the research phase partners will seek for women who make their mark in all aspects of entrepreneurship world with its ups and its downs. Because we believe that everywhere there are inspiring women, with strength, courage and tenacity to build great initiatives and inspire new generations.
