We are pleased to invite you to attend “500 business women”, Slovenia’s largest event dedicated to women entrepreneurs, which will be held on April 11, 2019 in Ljubljana.

For the seventh year running, the event named 500 BUSINESS WOMEN (500 PODJETNIC) is bringing together over 500 participants from Slovenia and neighboring countries.

The story of women entrepreneurs in Slovenia began in 1991, when a group of ladies set up an association for small enterprises (women-owned and family businesses). The Slovenian association (GIZ PODJETNOST-Spirit of Enterprise) later joined the World Association of Women Entrepreneurs (F:C:E:M). Over the years, the association, working together with the Institute of Female and Family Enterprises Zavod Meta initiated numerous actions and projects dedicated to empowering Slovenian women in business. The first event “500 business women” started in 2013  with 290 participants, only to reach the magic number 500 in 2016.

On April 11, 2019, we are preparing the seventh meeting “BUSINESS WOMEN (500 PODJETNIC)” and we are expecting more than 600 participants from Slovenia, as well as numerous guests from abroad. (Scotland, Greece, Cyprus, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Austria and Germany). We are proud to count the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Regional Chamber Ljubljana and Regional development agency among our partners helping us organize this event.
