International Women's Entrepreneurial Challenge –IWEC– is an initiative of the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce of Manhattan (New York) and FICCI/FLO (the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry Ladies Organization) supported by The US Department of State. IWEC was established in 2006 with the first IWEC Conference held in Barcelona in 2007 featuring three awardees from India. Subsequently, in 2008 & 2009 IWEC Conferences were held in New York City and New Delhi. Three new awardees were invited from chambers in Africa in 2008 and three awardees from Central Asia in 2009, bringing the number of awardees up to 15. Each year IWEC will continue to expand by inviting another chambers in other countries to participate and by moving the Annual Conferences to new cities.
The mission of IWEC is to develop a global business network for successful women business owners, helping them gain and expand access to knowledge of international markets, leadership skills and affording mentorship programs to women-owned SMEs.
