Accenture Mentoring Lunch

As part of the conference #WomanLiderTIC created a space to promote and support women's entrepreneurship: Accenture Mentoring Lunch. It is a special lunch to be held on November 17, so that women who have initiated start-up projects have the opportunity to be advised by large companies in the ICT sector.

Women who are interested in participating must register via this form and explain their project. They have until November 7 to do so. A jury will select 15 projects that will receive special support from #WomanLiderTIC.
