Business opportunities for women-owned businesses via WEConnect International


WEConnect International is a corporate-led non-profit and their goal is to connect more majority women owned businesses (those that are at least 51% owned, managed and controlled by one or more women) into the corporate supply chain. Their corporate members represent $1 trillion in annual purchasing power and are true pioneers in inclusive sourcing and global supplier development. More information can be found on their website: http://weconnectinternational.org/en/
WEConnect International currently has the following business opportunities – if you are a majority owned women’s business that could provide any of these requirements, please get in touch with Maggie Berry, Executive Director for Europe - 07776 302 906 or mberry@weconnectinternational.org.
Public Affairs Agency – pharmaceutical / Europe
One of WEConnect International’s corporate members currently has a drug on phase 3 for Alzheimer disease. In order to ensure a successful launch at the end of 2018 (if phase 3 works as planned), they are looking for a Public Affairs Agency that would be able to support them at European level and be able to identify the following group of persons:
- Policy makers: Today and tomorrow if changes
- Policy influencers: do not take decisions but can create favorable environment
- Patient advocacy groups: work on increasing awareness
At this stage, they do not want any communication, they only need to identify the groups plus, understand the best way to start engaging with them and how to influence them.
Requirements are:
- Capabilities to identify those groups so experience in public affairs at European level.
- Knowledge in Alzheimer would be a clear advantage.
Closing date: Thursday 11th February 2016

Products for a hotel chain – UK, Germany and France
One of WEConnect International’s corporate members is currently on the lookout for any women owned businesses that have products that could be used in a hotel. This includes food and drink products as well things like linen, furniture, technology, engineering, golf, leisure, gardening and more.
