Press conference Female Founders Monitor

Press conference Female Founders Monitor FFM

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.
