Female Founders Edition
Start date
12. October 2023
Deadline 12. October 2023
Event date
18:00 - 20:00

Are you thinking about founding your own company? Do you want to meet inspiring female founders? Are you curious about how it is to be a female founder in a male-dominated industry? Then join our Female Founders Event – free of charge! You will get the chance to meet four inspiring female founders and get a chance for a personal exchange during our fireside chats. 


Of all company founders in Switzerland, only approximately 20% are female and the percentage for science- and tech-based startups is even lower. We want to show aspiring female founders that there are many inspiring female role models out there.

Who can participate?

Women interested in entrepreneurship and women empowerment who are considering starting their own business; especially motivated and ambitious members of a Swiss university or University of Applied Sciences (students, doctoral students, postdocs, professors etc.).

This event is organized together with ETH, the ETH Student Project House, Impact Hub Zurich and the Female Founders Initiative and takes place at the ETH Student Project House followed by an Apéro to connect. 

The capacity of the event is strictly limited. If you cannot attend the event, please let us know so that we can give your seat to a person from the waiting list.

We are looking forward to an inspiring event with all of you!

«In my opinion there are way too few women in the start-up ecosystem in Switzerland. I am committed to offer my support to help other women become the best version of themselves.»
