Increasing the proportion of women involved is a topic close to the heart of all start-up ecosystems across the state. The Federal Association of German Startups e.V. investigated the low proportion of women in the start-up scene (15,1%) and contacted the federal agency for female entrepreneurs (bga), which is headquartered at the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Baden-Württemberg.
The Female Founders Monitor (FFM) shows facts & figures about women in start-ups in Germany based on the German Startup Monitor.
The Start-up BW Women projects are aiming to rise awareness and encourage females to become entrepreneurs. Events like “Speed-Dating of Female Students with Women Entrepreneurs“, „Startup: Female Founders & Insiders“, ‚Female Founders Nights and Female Founders Days“, „Women in Business Days“ or „Women in Tech“ are taking place in Baden-Wuerttemberg. We are also working on testimonials and setting up a network of mentors for female entrepreneurs.
