Portugal is considered one of the top 10 countries for women in business by the Mastercard Index of Women Entrepreneurs 2019 and we want to discover why, so we have invited three amazing women: Fabiana Clemente co-founder and CDO of YData, a company that offers a data privacy automated software solution, and Carolina Amorim, co-founder and CEO of EmotAI, a startup that aims to improve human performance through the use of neurotechnology; and Isabel Advirta who is in charge of the Department of Employment, Entrepreneurship and Companies, as well as the Municipal Directorate of Economy and Innovation at Lisbon's City Council.
During this panel, we're going to have a conversation around issues such as what’s Portugal doing well to be considered one of the top ten countries for women in business above the European Union averages, what is still to be done to encourage more women to become entrepreneurs. We will ask our guest their opinions and experiences raising funding, how do they measure success, and why metrics and data are important.
