Where female-led startups come to start up
If you are a first-time, Denmark-based female founder who wants to learn how to transform your innovative work-in-progress business idea into a startup with high growth potential, this is the place to be.
We have worked alongside hundreds of startups and while we are confident that we are doing a good job at helping them, we see a lack of gender diversity in the teams that turn to us for help. This is an initiative to change that.
Getting past the first draft of a business plan and figuring out your next steps is scary and confusing for most first-time founders. That is why we want to support you from an early stage, and why we do not expect you to work on your startups full-time, have an MVP and/or a complete team - yet.
Next application deadline: January 21, 2022
How we will help youThis 4-month mentoring program will help you validate your ideas, create a game plan, and carry out the next steps.
This is done by providing you with actionable and personalized advice from a handpicked mentor and subject-matter experts, access to a solid network and support system, and curated tools and resources.
Get to know the mentorsOur mentors have held high-level positions at companies like Momondo, Arla Foods, and Nykredit, worked alongside Denmark’s greatest entertainers and influencers, and founded companies as university students.
