Why & how we do this, and where we want to go.
Re-shaping 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 active, taking responsibility, creating positive change, being optimistic, passionate and proactive. It’s about confidence and trust in yourself, about solving problems for and contributing to society. It’s about being a leader – in your life, your career, and your community – and about making an impact.
In a world that is facing more challenges than ever, we need to start doing things differently. Old ways and approaches are no longer sufficient – as they led to all the troubles the world is currently facing. Therefore we need these entrepreneurial minds to lead the way into a bright future. Plus: we truly believe that it’s finally time to access the untapped creativity and potential of women.
All of this leads us to a very simple equation:
entrepreneurship + women = the future.

Creating a pan-European ecosystem for female entrepreneurial minds.
For us, Female Founders has always been more than a network for women. It’s a community of people that share the same values and who want to shape the future while being economically successful. And who happen to be women.
This is why we’ve decided to do more than events and to support our community along their entire entrepreneurial lifecycle – from inspiration to exit (and beyond). Our ecosystem currently consists of three main pillars:
Base F: our low-key community for everyone who identifies themself as an entrepreneurial mind
Grow F: our online startup accelerator for female-led venture that shape the world of tomorrow
Lead F: our leadership accelerator for female entrepreneurial minds that shape the world of tomorrow

In the last couple of years, we’ve experienced how crucial it is to be aware of your vision, mission and most of all: your values. This holds true for both our professional and personal lives. Our values are the core of what we do. They help us decide who we work with and who we support. All our decisions – on a company and individual level – shall be aligned with these values. We expect our partners, startups, and friends to share and support these values:
