background

Diversity and female representation is an ongoing challenge in the world of business and entrepreneurship. A study from the Netherlands showed that startups led by women received only 1.6% of VC funding and that 87% of Dutch VCs do not employ a single female investor. 

 

 

Change is slow but starts with awareness. This is where we come in... 

Our mission is to bring together three exceptional women with unique backgrounds in different stages of their journey, learn from their insights and create meaningful connections. By giving female role models a stage to discuss the

challenges and opportunities of being women in male-dominated industries, we want to inspire and empower our participants to look and go beyond the stereotypes surrounding female founders.

mission

Gender diversity is not just the right thing to do but it is good for business: Start-ups founded and co-founded by women ultimately deliver higher revenue ($730,000 compared with $662,000). Also, companies with gender-diverse founding teams deliver more than twice as much revenue per dollar invested compared to those founded by only men.
