Join Our Swiss Business and MAMAGORA on February 28th at 9:00 – 10:30 at Impact Hub Zürich Viadukt Bogen D Meeting Room V1 (Viaduktstrasse 93, 8005 Zürich)
This event is designed for women, who want to realize themselves professionally and are considering entrepreneurship as a possible way, but are experiencing doubts and fears. This event is also an occasion to bring together two wonderful communities of women.
Gretel will briefly present the results of a survey taken by more than 100 women based in Switzerland, who are intrigued by the possibility of starting their own business but are not taking action. She will focus on the 6 main obstacles perceived by the survey’s respondents and she will offer some tips to overcome them, based on her own and her clients’ experience.
A small breakfast will be served.
About the speaker: Gretel Gambarelli is Founder of Our Swiss Business, offering a women’s community of “business dreamers”, as well as 1-1 mentoring & group training for small business owners (& dreamers:-). Gretel, Italian national, is an Economist with a PhD in Sustainable Development and more than 10 years of experience in international development organizations (e.g. The World Bank in Washington DC), tackling global environmental problems in developing countries. After moving to Switzerland in 2011, Gretel lost her job and soon realized that getting a new, fulfilling position was very hard. She then started to think about creating her own business. It took her 3 years to find an idea she felt passionate about, and most importantly the courage to kick off. While developing Our Swiss Business, Gretel decided to focus not only on the technical aspects of developing business but also on helping her clients overcome their fears and the sense of loneliness associated with an independent activity. This is why, beyond offering individual consulting, Our Swiss Business offers business training in small groups and a free online community with offline events.
