BNP Paribas Wealth Management hosts 4th Women's Entrepreneurs Programme
12/07/2018 , News Team

BNP Paribas Wealth Management are welcoming 40 female entrepreneurs as the firm  hosts the fourth ‘Women Entrepreneurs Programme’ with the Women Initiative Foundation at Stanford Graduate School of Business.

The women, who come from 14 countries and were selected based on their experience and international focused companies, are attending a week-long programme on leadership and accelerating business, which aims to offer a mix of knowledge, skill acquisition and development.

The entrepreneurs represent a range of sectors including education, hospitality, health, wholesale, fashion, film production, ultra-cleans, data capture, navigation solutions, consulting, online travel, manufacturing, real estate and food and beverage. They come from Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. 

During the programme, the women will gain academic insight from Stanford faculty members, they will go on site visits in Silicon Valley and will also have the opportunity to network with other participants.

This year, a roundtable discussion, a dinner with Jeff Clavier, founder and managing partner of Uncork Capital, and a visit to Hive Data in Silicon Valley, which specialises in artificial intelligence, have been added to the programme.

Sofia Merlo, co-chief executive BNP Paribas Wealth Management, said: “As a leading private bank, we create connections to empower entrepreneurs, in finance and beyond. This program is all about connecting these talented women with new ideas, new people, new places and actually new business opportunities!” 

Martine Liautaud, president Women Initiative Foundation, added: “We are proud that The Stanford Program contributes to the global discussion on gender diversity and to the promotion of women in the entrepreneurial space." 

In the past four years BNP Paribas Wealth Management has provided over 150 women with training from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

This year’s programme began on 8 July and will finish on 13 July 2018. 

BNP Paribas Wealth Management is a global private bank, which has hubs in Europe, Asia and the USA. The bank has EUR 364 billion worth of assets under management, as at 31 December 2017.
