Femmes & Challenges is a regional initiative that is unique in France: it is the Norman business network, unifying all initiatives around female entrepreneurship. Created by Léa Lassarat at the end of 2017, it brings together women (and men) business leaders, managers, women in responsibilities and project leaders.

The network's objectives?
Remove all obstacles to entrepreneurship led by women and consolidate the sustainability of businesses by implementing concrete actions in the field:
- Women & Promotion Challenges: actions to raise young people's awareness of entrepreneurship.
- Women & Challenges Academy: training program for project leaders.
- Women & Challenges Mentoring: support, technical and moral support for female and business leaders by business leaders.
- Femmes & Challenges Fund: entrepreneurship support fund, job creator in the region.
- Women & Audacity Challenges: develop the expertise of network members by organizing workshops and conferences and highlighting them in the media.

Highlights and gatherers all year round
- Regards Croisés: evening of conference-debate led by several female business leaders or top managers whose energy is communicative, the journey ambitious and who really make you want to go further and achieve your goals.
- Business Time: Business exchanges, sharing of experiences and operational solutions around a breakfast or a cocktail, Business Time allows a member to discover his professional activity, testifies of his career and exchanges his good practices around an issue.
- Workshops: workshop, round table or company visit, the Workshop allows members of the network to meet around a defined theme aimed at developing their knowledge and taking advantage of it for their business. The Workshop generally ends with a time of networking to exchange and network around a cocktail reception.
- Women & Challenges Academy: A complete and tailor-made innovative program for the future woman entrepreneur combining workshops, individual and collective coaching, serious games, technical and moral support. The objectives: benefit from the sharing of experiences of a whole network of business leaders, break the isolation and lift the brakes of the project leader.
