WeRin Project Update

WeRin Project Update

29 July, 2021

The WeRin project is at an exciting point in taking the entrepreneurial ecosystem pulse of each partner country. Across Germany, the Netherlands, Turkey, Croatia, Norway and Ireland, semi-structured research interviews have been conducted with women entrepreneurs, students and alumni, entrepreneurship educators, programme managers and ecosystem stakeholders. In Ireland, at the Hincks Centre and the Rubicon Business Incubator, the data gathering process is complete and to date 68 interviews have been conducted.


Last week the partners met online to discuss the data analysis plan and review the data analysis methods. We estimate that across the project, over 360 semi-structured interviews will have been conducted to inform the next project phases. These interviews will inform our individual country report and will feed into the next stage of training material design using collaborative processes and think-tanks. We expect the reports to be finalised during September 2021.



The Hincks Centre and the WeRin researchers send a very big THANK YOU to every volunteer who provided good practice information, a research interview, or a role model interview to the project. We are looking forward to putting the inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem insights to good effect.
