This time with a special edition – #25to25 – The Female Founder Pitch

Did you know that only about 16 percent of founders are female? We think it’s time to finally change that! With the Female Founder Pitch, we want to offer female founders a stage to present themselves and their company and increase their visibility. Accompanied by vision: 25 to 25. Our long-term goal is to increase the quota of women in the startup scene from the current 16 percent to 25 percent by 2025.
