Since the launch of the WeHubs project (European Network of women web entrepreneurs hubs) in January 2015, many efforts have been made not only to support European existing and potential women web entrepreneurs by coordinating and stimulating relevant ecosystems but also to find inspiring role models to encourage more women to enter the world of digital business. The consortium team of WeHubs is now glad to release the first four success stories (read full interviews) resulting from these efforts.
