Launch of www.female-founders.ch

Women are still highly underrepresented in the startup sector with a share of around 20% – looking at science and tech-based startups the share is even lower with only 10% female founders.

The reasons for these disparities are complex, but women clearly have to overcome a whole range of obstacles on their way to the top. The underrepresentation of women in the startup scene is not only a societal and systemic issue for gender equality, but also a missed opportunity for the economy.

With a newly launched initiative, STARTUP CAMPUS who is powered by ZHAW and Impact Hub Zurich aims to tackle these problems and alter the narrative about women entrepreneurs in Switzerland.

The Female Founders map aims to fulfill three targets:

Our call to action:

  • Spread the word about innovative and inspiring female founders
  • Submit female-driven startups

Together we can change the narrative of female entrepreneurs in Switzerland!
