Female Founders Edition
Start date

Deadline 06. April 2022
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!



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 the University of Zurich and the UZH Innovation Hub and takes place at the University of Zurich onsite. Please note that attending the event requires a valid covid certificate.

The capacity of the event is strictly limited. Register now for free using our registration tool. 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.»

«I think female role models are essential for hopefully seeing more female founders in the Swiss startup scene soon.»
