About Us

With the Female Founders Night we seek to create a platform of discussion regarding the role of women in our current and future society with a focus on areas such as entrepreneurship, politics and art. At Zeppelin university, 300 eager and excited students from different universities will come together for a day of thought-provoking exchange. Through our event’s atmosphere, we create a space for intimate exchange between our speakers and our participants.

 

Our talks and panels tackle topics that range from social entrepreneurship, to mindfulness, art, the tech-scene and all the way to female empowerment.

 

We want to make strong, confident women visible for everyone and aim to reshape the stigma surrounding female founders. Entrepreneurship has many facets; we define entrepreneurship as a pioneering spirit that challenges existing limits.

 

Come and join us for a day of discovering these perspectives and creating your own definition!
