Our initiative Women Start-up excites and motivates women to become involved in technology and entrepreneurship. We help you discover your talents and provide you with the right qualifications to found a start-up. On your path to becoming a founder, we support you hands-on and offer consulting.

Join the community and meet other inspiring women and female founders. We organize network events, start-up visits, and workshops. Events that are open to all are part of our offer: feel free to bring along others and expand our common network. Our regular morning jour fixe is an informal exchange that takes place at different venues.

We need more women in the tech start-up scene. Considering the societal challenges we’re facing, we can’t afford to do without the entrepreneurial power and creativity of women. That’s why we founded the Women Start-up initiative: to encourage women and support them in setting up their own business or getting involved in a start-up.

Our Offer

Network Events

Women at and around UnternehmerTUM: exchange ideas, network, support each other! Here, you’ll find the ideal framework. We organize events and start-up visits, invite keynote speakers, and plan meetups. The events are usually open to everyone: feel free to invite others and strengthen the community.


What challenges are you facing? What do you need on the way to your own start-up? We offer customized workshops that are tailored to your problems and needs. Depending on your phase (before or during the process of founding), there are different topics that play a role and those are specifically what we want to address.

Here are a few examples of workshops we offer: Ideation, Business Design, Prototyping, Entrepreneurial Personality & Leadership, Pitch Training, Venture Financing, Women at Makerspace, Raising Awareness.
