Support policies and schemes for women’s entrepreneurship can be found here. This section also includes the legislative framework at national and EU level. Find websites and platforms that gather and summarise regulations, directives, decisions, resolutions, recommendations and opinions that promote and support female entrepreneurship.

Use the ‘country’ filter below to refine your search and view country-specific information only.

If you are unable to find country- or sector-specific information, try using other search criteria.

To help with this, we have added tags which enable you to search for specific information throughout the platform, so that you can view all the relevant information on one topic without having to browse through all the sections and sub-sections.

As some information is relevant to both women and men, please keep in mind that some results will target women in particular, while others will be relevant to entrepreneurs in general
