Women in Business was launched in 2009 by entrepreneur Alice Botnarenco and it is a portal with the newest information in the Romanian and international business environment, a source of inspiration for women interested in their professional lives (through the interviews, events and news presented) as well as a platform for promoting women and the businesses they run.
In the 9 years since it started, Women in Business has gathered experience by organizing hundred of business networking events, conferences, workshops, seminars and business fairs run by women.
In 2012, Women in Business represented Romania at Global Summit of Women 2012 (Athens, Greece) – the largest international economic forum for women. This was the first step towards the international development of the organization and has set the tone for numerous partnerships with women in business associations, among which AFAEMME (Spain), WEConnect International (UK), Inspiring Wo-Men Business Club (Luxembourg), Women Entrepreneur Association in Moldavia and many more.
In 2012 Women in Business launched the first membership platform dedicated to women in the Romanian business environment through which an active community of women was created. They have been active, involved and interested in their professional development ever since. Thus, Women in Business built partnerships and collaborations between active members in the community, offered them the necessary exposure and promotion, paved the road for new business opportunities and granted them access to internal and international business events.
The involvement as an active source of information about the business environment through news, events, and inspirational interviews with experienced or new businesspeople, as well as the trust gained on the market has led Women in Business to be recognized as one of the most valuable development and information resources in the business environment!
