FOUNDress - Women Founders Programme

In a results-oriented programme lasting several months, FOUNDress shows participants their potential as (co-)founders and supports them in the (further) development of their own founder personality. Part of the programme are coaching sessions, discussion rounds and workshops that are specifically geared to the needs of female founders. In addition, we introduce them to successful female founders and promote exchange among the participants within the framework of joint activities - such as a visit to a start-up-specific trade fair.

The participants of FOUNDress are women who are interested in the topic of founding a business or are in the process of founding a business, as well as those who are open to participating in a business start-up. The offer is aimed at the following target groups:
