Aims

  • Women are showing an ever keener interest in private enterprise in Finland today. Their ambitions are being noticed and encouraged in our society.

  • To success in business, though, a woman needs more than society can give, she must have true dedication and long-range thinking together with a business idea that takes into proper account local competition.

  • The laws affecting businesses are the same for women and men, but the sectors in which women are involved are different.

  • This means that the social obligations and legislative issues concerning the status of women, childcare and other aspects of welfare, affect particularly a woman entrepreneur.

  • A business woman usually has a service enterprise employing other women.
