Guests at Female Founder Summit 2017

Under the motto “More Stages for Female Founders”, Female Founders summit is offering a podium to female founders to pitch their ideas at large events. Two events are open for registration: the Zug Impact summit and the Swiss Startup Days.

The Female Founder Summit is an annual event bringing together over 300 guests comprising of 80% women, international speakers and 10 women pitching in front of investors. For networking during the year, the organisation launched the Female Founder Drinks in Switzerland, bringing together up to 60 women entrepreneurs per event for insights and personal exchange.The next Female Founders drinks takes place on 4th July.

The idea for the Summit evolved, as there are a great many events and services for startups and entrepreneurs in Switzerland, but a chronic lack of women as founders, and women as guests at such events. Based on the community of over 10'000 women in business on a national and international level built by the WomenWay Association since 2009, the target audience female entrepreneurs could be reached, built and attracted as guests for the Summit events.

Pitching opportunities for female founders
Female Founder Summit is organising joint activities with partner events to create more visibility for Female Founders in a much larger audience. Participation in the partner events is aligned with this year’s motto, which was created to enable Female Founders to network and connect with more investors.

This autumn, female founders have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to the audiences at one of the two joint events. Startups can apply here for pitching on the Female Founder Stages in September.

These include:

The Zug Impact Summit – the event brings together impact investors from all areas and geographies to improve the state of the world in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The event will take place from 17th to 18th September 2018. The Female Founder Summit joins the event with a pitching stage for Female Founders in the impact field.

The Swiss Startup Days – the two-day event is one of the largest start-up events in Switzerland, with an audience of over 700 attendees, hosting keynotes, panels, start-up competitions, workshops and more - in Bern. This year the event, which takes place on 25th and 26th September 2018, will feature the Female Founder Pitches, with 10 pitching slots.

Deadline for application closes End of June.
