Meet our


Female Founders was born in 2016 as an initiative to support ambitious women during their rollercoaster ride of entrepreneurship through networking, mentoring and mutual exchange.

We have grown to be a movement with a large mission – the drive to encourage and empower women is what unites our team.

We’re a passionate bunch. Every member of our team brings vast experience from their industry and a strong desire to make sure women have equal access to business opportunities and representation in political and economic decision-making processes which does not only fuel sustainable economies but benefit societies at large.
