In Switzerland, women's business enterprises that are at least 51% owned, managed, and controlled by one or more women may self-register with WEConnect International. Self-registration is a unique opportunity for women business owners to enter the WEConnect International eNetwork and partner with other women owned businesses. It also allows women business owners to create a business profile in WEConnect International’s eNetwork which is accessed by our corporate members, certified women’s business enterprise (WBEs) and other self-registered businesses globally.

We received nearly 100 entries from 11 countries and named 5 finalists who are now in the running for a grand prize. Though Lakritza Communications, PR & Event Management's entry was not chosen for the final round, we wanted to share their photo and a little more about the company.
