    Patricia Zeegers, PWN Global’s VP of Entrepreneurship, said: “Women business professionals with a desire or need to start their own business and women entrepreneurs in their first 2 to 3 years who are interested in joining this year’s programme should get in touch now. The COVID-19 pandemic is especially harmful to working women, and it will permanently reshape our world as it continues to unfold. However, some changes will serve women business owners well. Remote work, in some form, is here to stay. And investors are starting to expand their focus and include the impact an organization has into the assessment. It’s time for women to step up and present their solutions to current challenges to the world”.
