About WEConnect International

        • WEConnect International is a non-profit organisation.
        • Their aim is to support women position their business to procurement departments of large companies.
        • You can be on your own, lead a small team or run a company. As long as your business is (majority) owned
           by women, you qualify. Even if men are part of the team.
        • WeConnect is present on all continents. Also in Europe. Initiatives in several countries are under way.
          In Germany it started in June 2016, Switzerland has a kick-off event in October etc. They are working
          towards establishing local connections and you can then talk to people in German if that is easier for you.

What happens at the event?
It is interesting for any self-employed women or women-owner if you are targeting large corporations for selling.
You hear and discuss a) what participants have to offer and b) what procurement departments need (what the process looks like) if you want to sell them something. You will also learn more about WEConnect.
One company hosts the event. They provide the room and help organise it. In Zurich that will be IBM. However, their will be other companies represented and it is not a specific IBM event.
