We help female employees to become entrepreneurial leaders.

What it is

Our vision is to re-shape economy and society by fostering female entrepreneurial minds. 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. It’s about being a leader and about making an impact. That is why Lead F aims to inspire and support female leaders in developing their entrepreneurial mindsets and preparing tomorrow’s female managers for profound changes in the world of work, especially due to COVID-19.

The content is based on the reference framework by the European Commission 

We work with this framework called EntreComp published by the European Commission. It is a comprehensive and flexible reference framework for the understanding and development of entrepreneurship as a competence. The framework perfectly aligns with the vision of our Lead F accelerator, which is building a Pan-European network of leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset.

Since 2016, EntreComp has become a key tool in creating a European entrepreneurial society. It creates a shared understanding of the knowledge, skills and attitudes that make up what it means to be entrepreneurial – discovering and acting upon opportunities and ideas, and transforming them into social, cultural, or financial value or others.
