It all started when Constanze Layher and two other women were the only people interested in founding a business at the student start-up roundtable in 2017. Constanze wondered how it could be that out of 20 men, only three women were interested in becoming entrepreneurs. So she founded the Female Founders Night because we all knew that this had to change and that more women were needed to deal with entrepreneurship.
In 2018, with a team of twelve and 140 attendees, we organized the first student event in Europe that motivates women to start their own business. Without the volunteers of the core team back then, Female Founders Night would not exist today. So a big thank you goes to: Victoria Waterböhr, Cara Cramer, Lea Kessler, Sophie Retsch, Julia Kraus, Lennart Hirschbiegel and Constanze Layher. As well as many more who supported the team and the Female Founders Night in 2018.
