Networking event created new business initiatives between female entrepreneurs from Finland, Pakistan and Sri Lanka


On October 7th, Finnpartnership together with its partners (Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, International Trade Centre, the Women Entrepreneurs of Finland and the Honorary Consulate of Finland in Pakistan) arranged an online info and networking event for female entrepreneurs and female-led companies from Finland, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. At the event, the participants were provided with information on co-operation opportunities and the financial and other services available. The latter part of the event, meanwhile, was dedicated to B2B meetings which enabled the participants to get to know each other one-on-one. The event brought together over 40 female-led companies from e.g. textile, crafts, ICT and service industries, and initiated several promising business initiatives.

The event supported gender equality, which is also one of Finnpartnership’s primary strategic goals.

For the event, an online platform was created for the registered participants to view each other’s profiles and send messages to each other. The event platform will remain open until April 2022, and is open for new female entrepreneurs and female-led companies to join even if they missed the initial event. This means that you can create your own profile and start networking with the other participants on the platform today!

Finnpartnership and the other organizers can support business cooperation between the target countries of the event. The event platform also contains video and slide presentations on all available services.

Thank you to all participants! Make sure to join the platform and start networking if you are a female entrepreneur / female-led company from Finland, Pakistan or Sri Lanka!
