What is going on? Could it be that the field we are focused on; Fintech, cybersecurity and blockchain; is very male-dominated? Still, it cannot be that there are so few females starting companies. I have spoken to quite many female-founders and the ones who started a company are determined and follow through.
Maybe the problem is getting started?
Accelerator Frankfurt is launching a virtual female-only acceleration program later this autumn. Have the courage to start! “Courage doesn’t mean that you don’t get afraid. Courage means that you don’t let fear stop you.” (Bethany Hamilton, a one-handed pro-surfer in the picture)
This is a problem we have discussed within the startup ecosystem and among investors and it is time to find a solution. We provide a platform, now it is up to the entrepreneurial women to show up. For more information or if you wish to sponsor a female founder during the program, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
