Inspiring female founders, encouraging success stories, a strong network for female entrepreneurs - UnternehmerTUM wants to attract more women to the tech start-up scene and support them with special offers. Read here what moves our female community and which initiatives you can benefit from.

The proportion of women founding their own start-ups is still shamefully low in Germany compared to start-ups founded by men. If you look into this phenomenon, the reasons are always the same: too few role models, too many barriers to financing due to prejudice and, not least, a lack of confidence among women in their own abilities. This is where we come in, for example, with our Women Start-up initiative, which not only promotes a strong network that offers women exchange and support. Here, contacts are arranged and female founders are actively suggested for the offers and formats of UnternehmerTUM.

In various networking events and talk formats, we let female entrepreneurs have their say and report on their experiences, e.g. in our Female Founder Talk. You are welcome to watch the video recording here!

Definition of "Female Entrepreneurship": The term "Female Entrepreneurship" describes the issues surrounding the founding of companies by women. It is assumed that the experiences, skills, needs and premises of female founders are partially or fundamentally different from those of their male colleagues. Since female founders are underrepresented in the start-up scene as a whole, "Female Entrepreneurship" starts here in order to promote female start-ups.
