Monthly Event: Entrepreneur Spotlight at Crowne Plaza

PWG Entrepreneur Spotlight

The Entrepreneur spotlight is a panel discussion with four women, three entrepreneurs at different stage of the business lifecycle and one angel investor.

We believe success leaves clues and we can learn a lot from people who have gone before us.

From our panellist we will hear

  • How they started their business
  • What they learned along the way
  • What enabled them to get to where they are today
  • What challenges they overcame along the way

We want to support PWG entrepreneurs. We will have our very first PWG Expo and members can have a trade table during the event. Reserve your trade table soon as space is limited and let’s celebrate female entrepreneurship together!

For trade table reservation or question about the event, please contact:  anapaula@pwg-zh.com  and  alena@pwg-zh.com

In 1996, Giselle Rufer decided to create DELANCE, Swiss watches for women as she saw a gap in the market for watches especially designed women (not just a smaller version of a man’s watch). Giselle, an artist and engineer, draws on her experience of becoming an entrepreneur. Her desire was to create a masterpiece, a work symbolizing her talents and personal commitment. Giselle through her creation of the DELANCE has learnt about the creativity, courage and dedication to excellence need to be a successful entrepreneur. She shares her experience with entrepreneurs or those who dream of creating their own business.
