In this summer special, we meet at Microsoft’s Digital Eatery and connect aspiring founders of all kinds with women who are keen to join a (nascent) startup as a co-founder. We will set up a pitch session for both parties: If you already have a startup idea, you get the chance to present your idea and what kind of co-founder you’re looking for. If you don’t have a startup idea yourself but are interested in joining a startup as a female co-founder, you get the chance to present yourself with your skills, expertise, and field of interest. In the networking part afterwards, you can talk to everyone – and maybe you find your perfect match!
See below the details on how to get your spot in the pitch session!
6:30 pm – Doors open
7:00 pm – Introduction by Heike, Janina & Mae
7:15 pm – Input by Soul Rebel Coaching
7:30 pm – Pitch Session
8:00 pm – Networking
How to apply for the pitch session? If you’d like to present your idea or yourself in the pitch session, please get in touch with us in advance. Write to hallo[at]femalecofounders.de and add your pitch deck if possible! It might sound funny to present oneself with a pitch but do not hesitate to spotlight your ambitions and skills. The maximum time slot is 3 minutes per pitch. Get in touch for any other question that might come up.
The founders of Soul Rebel Coaching will give an input on the importance of similarities and differences when picking a co-founder. As they know about the ups and downs of starting a business and how important it is to manage the relationship between co-founders actively, they have set up a special coaching program for co-founding teams.
