Women are significantly underrepresented when it comes to founding an own venture. Only around 15 % of all founders are female. That is why the Female Founders Monitor (FFM) aims to find out specific needs and experiences of female founders. The results will be presented in a press conference that will be held 30 June at 10 am online. A registration is required and can be done here.

The Female Founders Monitor focusses on the importance of female founders and also underlines their role within the startup ecosystem. Female founders tend to have a very good and in many cases more realistic sense for current trends and general economic tendencies, which makes them valuable for the entire ecosystem.

The results will be presented by Brigitte Zypris (former Minister of Economics and Energy), Mayra Frank (Lead Google for Startups Germany), Dr. Alexander Hirschfeld (Research Lead German Startup Association) and Dr. Gesa Miczaika (Co-Founder AUXXO Investments Borad Member, German Startup Association).

In addition to the FFM results a survey about the impact of the corona-crisis on female founders will be published in the press conference.

The “Academic Seed Accelerator Program Baden-Württemberg“ is a region-wide competition for students of all universities of Baden-Württemberg. Start-up BW ASAP is intended to motivate students to transform their founding ideas into business concepts and forms a bridge between uni teachings and offers of intensive coaching of ventures.

The final of the competition will be held on 23 July 2020 from 4.30 pm on. This is when the best student start-ups from all over Baden-Württemberg are going to present their ideas. Due to covid-19 presentations will be held online. Make sure you register on https://bit.ly/2BxS2dU. Zoom link and programme can only be sent to registered participants.

Feinberg, Professor of biomedical engineering and materials science at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh.

After their talks, the speakers will be joined by Petra Kerscher, Senior Scientist Expert in 3D bioprinting at Merck, in a panel discussion moderated by Christoph Huels, Founder of the AMT project at the Merck Innovation Center, to answer questions like:

• What are the current opportunities and applications of 3D printing for human health?
• How far away are we from the most exciting future developments?
• Why have additive manufacturing technologies developed so fast within the healthcare market?
• What hurdles does the bioprinting field need to overcome to keep advancing?
