E-002465/2018(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Bieńkowska on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-002465/2018

The WEgate platform was launched by the Commission in 2016 with the objective of stimulating women’s entrepreneurship in Europe by combining information and guidance across the EU on how to start and grow a business.

1. The WEgate platform has been subject to a stakeholder, press and social media campaign before, during and after its launch. The platform and its content are being regularly promoted through social media, in particular through its #WEgate hashtag. WEgate was also promoted at the occasion of the WEgate seminar organised for stakeholders on 31 January 2018 in cooperation with the Honourable Members Mlinar and Dlabajová.2. For budgetary and efficiency reasons, the platform cannot be translated in other languages than English, German and French. However, stakeholders are encouraged to contribute to its content (for example by sending information about events or studies) in any EU language. This content is then translated in the three working languages and placed on WEgate.3. Among the 663 users (i.e. both entrepreneurs and stakeholders) registered on WEgate, 57 are from Spain. In addition, a success story of a Spanish entrepreneur and an event in Spain were recently advertised on the platform.
