About Female Founders
Female Founders is the fastest growing community for female entrepreneurial minds in Europe. We as Female Founders believe that - in a world facing more challenges than ever - today’s economy and society are forced to change, and that entrepreneurship will play a crucial role in this transformation, just like women, who will be the leaders of change.
Our vision is to contribute to this change by fostering these women who drive positive change. For us, an entrepreneurial mindset is not only about starting a business, it’s about being active, taking responsibility, creating positive change, being optimistic, passionate and proactive, as well as having confidence and trust in yourself.
We realize this vision by creating a pan-European ecosystem for female entrepreneurial minds, currently consisting of three pillars:
● Base F: our low-key community for everyone who identifies themself as an entrepreneurial mind
● Grow F: our startup accelerator for female-led ventures that shape the world of tomorrow
● Lead F: our people’s accelerator for female entrepreneurial minds that shape their industries
Driven by our values, we regard ourselves as a meaningful connection for everyone in our community. By being a source of support and guidance, we’re there every step along the way of the entrepreneurial minds’ life.
