A note from Webit.Foundation Executive Chairman, Plamen Russev:
A few months ago when the European Commissioner for Digital Agenda and Society, Mrs. Mariya Gabriel acceped to Chair the Plenary Session of Webit.Festival Europe, she shared that it is a misson for her to empower women in business and politics.
My wife and executive director of Webit Global Series - Aniela Russeva is an inspiration for how the combination of education, will, passion, direction and tender power can make mirracles. I am also fortunate to work and partner with so many female leaders from all around the world!
So when Commissioner Gabriel spoke so passionate about empowering women it was iminent her mission not to become Webit.Foundaton mission too!
Chair of Webit Plenary Session:
Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Digital Agenda and Society
Today I am glad to announce 1000 free* tickets for Webit.Festival Europe for women:
* 10 EUR handling and transaction fee applies per ticket.
On a personal level as investor - I am looking to support more and more female founders and to help them to proof success is not a matter of gender, but equal opportunities, education and hard work.
Webit.Festival Europe is also building a special Women's Lounge, which is powered by FiBank.
You will see below a number of Bulgarian women and this is not by chance!
I am proud to share that Bulgaria is a great example and a global role model of gender equality in business and especially tech. According to the official statistics by Eurostat, Bulgaria is the leader in Europe with with 31.02% women in ICT. The average for EU is almost 2 times less - 16.7%!
I am so grateful all these global leaders - amazing ladies accepted our invite to join Webit!
