Welcome to our


Female Founders is the fastest growing community for female entrepreneurial minds in Europe.




Accelerator programs

We believe that – in a world facing more challenges than ever – today’s economy and society are forced to change, and that entrepreneurship will play a crucial role in this transformation, just like women.

For us, entrepreneurship is not necessarily about starting or running a business. It’s a state of mind, a principle of life and an approach to dealing with problems. 


Keep it meaningful,

The Female Founders Team
