Traditionally, ABW Serbia kept the practice and granted Special mentions to the most successful women entrepreneurs. This year, six women entrepreneurs were awarded.
“Initiatives towards associating women entrepreneurs on regional level were started up this year as we will bring more efficient solutions for common problems by working together. Being aware that we share the same problems is a certain relief, but awareness of joint problem solving is much more important for strengthening self-confidence. We are aware that we are on a long road to reforms which should bring significant improvements in the area of women entrepreneurship, but also, the betterment of the whole society”, said Sanja Popovic Pantic, president of ABW Serbia and the creator of the project “Success Flower”.
