🇨🇮 Our latest MEET Her Côte d'Ivoire event, which took place on June 30 in Abidjan, brought together nearly 80 people to discuss issues linked to women's entrepreneurship in Côte d'Ivoire.

🎯During the day, we were able to tackle a wide range of topics linked to the entrepreneurial approach: the cultural approach, the necessary listening skills and boldness to undertake, formalism, access to information to structure one's business, ownership, regulations, related skills to acquire (accounting, taxation, legal, intellectual property, etc.). These are just some of the complex issues that women entrepreneurs need to master if they are to get started.

🚀✨Bravo tothe 8 speakers who pitched their projects:
