    The lack of female participation in the EU labour market continues to represent a significant source of untapped potential for EU economies. As outlined by the EU Commission Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025, gender stereotypes and male-dominated models and networks continue to prevail to the detriment of women. Covid-19 has undoubtedly exacerbated the challenges of female entrepreneurship promotion as well as the social challenges of violence against women and discrimination. However, the post-pandemic landscape provides for new opportunities for female entrepreneurship, therefore, DEW - Digital Entrepreneurship for Women - is ideally placed to respond to the need for gender-specific training around digital enterprise as well as to the underrepresentation of women in the entrepreneurial space. Within this context, DEW delivers the following innovative solutions:  Developing innovative, gender-specific training on female entrepreneurship with specific focuses on key areas where women entrepreneurs experience the most challenges (i.e., access to finance, digitalisation and accessing networks)  Establishing an Open Educational Resource Platform which enables access to free resources in 4 languages  Contributing to policy development on the topic of women entrepreneurs and digital enterprises, by specifically applying a gender lens to the ENTRECOMP Framework DEW harnesses the expertise of seven partners from five countries who represent the various dimensions and aspects of female entrepreneurship with a specific emphasis on digital empowerment. Within the partnership are public and private sector organisations as well as academic, NGO and ICT partners. All of this expertise will combine to successfully deliver on this innovative project.
