WISE 'Women Innovators for Social Business' in Europe An ERASMUS Life Long Learning Project WISE aims to support and promote women social entrepreneurs in Europe through developing training and networking tools for them. The study of female social entrepreneurs is a nascent field and even though obstacles for these entrepreneurs to create and develop enterprise have been examined, their specific needs are under-researched. WISE investigates the needs of these entrepreneurs and develops interactive training modules as well as an online networking platform for them. WISE was developed by a consortium of organizations from five European countries. The partners were ESADE (Barcelona, Spain), ESA (Crete, Greece), HUB Zagreb (Zagreb, Croatia), DESA (Dubrovnik, Croatia), Freims OG (Vienna, Austria) and HSG/OPSY (St. Gallen, Switzerland). The development of WISE was funded by the Lifelong Learning Program of the European Union. The WISE project leader at OPSY was Kim Poldner in close collaboration with Julia Nentwich and Chris Steyaert. Kim obtained her PhD on sustainable fashion entrepreneurship in 2013 from the University of St. Gallen. She currently is an assistant professor at Wageningen University in The Netherlands.
