This year, BWE21 annual conference “women for Success” was the 6th, themed “Digitalization of Ecosystem”, as we know the importance of Digitalization for a conducive market environment, as we aim at delivering actionable recommendations for empowering women as engines of societal & economic growth.
This years’ conference was successfully inaugurated on February 22nd 2020 at the Arab league, Cairo. Then it was taken to Sharm El Sheikh till February 25th, where we had 200+ participants from more than 25 different countries.
This year we were pleased to have 56+ speakers in 13+ sessions, where we tackled different topics:
- The Digital Transformation & Entrepreneurial Ecosystem.
- Fintech & Internet of Things.
- Investment Opportunities in Sharm & Egypt.
- International Women Entrepreneurs Success Factors’ Insights.
- Integrate Technology into your Business.
- Sectorial Workshops: Creative Industries, Opportunities in Crisis Times, Retaining Talented Employees, Branding 2020, Work Life Balance.
- The Rise, Fall & Rise again of Businesses (Story Telling).

We also believe in the power of partnerships as together we can move mountains. Hence, we signed a Protocol with VDU Germany, BWE21 Egypt , SEVE Algeria, CNFCE Tunisia & LLBW Lebanon to build “Women in Business”, a platform for business women, which is going to be our “first online hub & knowledge bank for businesswomen in Egypt”, as it is the ideal platform to “connect the dots” to strategize on how to best contribute to unlocking “women power” in the world’s most dynamic and consolidated economies.
