Affiong Williams’ advice for female entrepreneurs participating with BiD Network:

My advice would be to really think big! I want to encourage them to remove any constraints that might hold them back from thinking they can own the business of their dreams. Society often represents so many restrictions that cause women to settle for something small, but the truth is that despite the energy and work it takes, you should always think BIG. It will not happen in one day, but it should always be your end goal. Women seem to be uncomfortable with saying “I want to own a multi- billion dollar business”. But why wouldn’t they own one?

The added value of BSCK and BiD Network according Leana Mahmuti:

BSCK (one of BiD Network’s partners) offered me entrepreneurship courses and marketing support, while BiD Network gave me the chance to travel to the Netherlands to have B2B meetings as well as receiving coaching and advanced training in business plan writing and meeting with angel investors. Both BSCK and BiD Network have been a support in educative matters and gave me the opportunity to create new connections.
