Female Entrepreneurs

Woensdag 03 juni 2015 // 08:00 uur

In the tradition of giving the floor to women, the woensdagmorgen.nl focus this time on female entrepreneurs. Not only are women in the space sector under represented, women also remain a minority among entrepreneurs. A 2014 report from Babson College found that less than 3 percent of venture capital-funded businesses had women at the helm. But there is increasing attention on levelling the playing field and number of opportunities available to women in business today. This woensdagmorgen.nl three inspiring women will present about their thoughts and businesses. What can we learn from them from their road on starting a business? What kind of support and network are there helping level the playing field for female entrepreneurs

Join us to get inspired and empowered to turn your ideas into a reality and build successful businesses.

After attending the ESA Appathon in Noordwijk, the team of Viridian Raven won the first price in the pre-selections. The team was invited to Barcelona to develop the concept during the ESA App Camp, where the team has won the second price. After Barcelona, the new goal is to develop the concept to a usable product and therefore Viridian Raven is currently working on getting the financial and technical support at ESA BIC Noordwijk.
