Diversity event at Tech BBQ: When feminine values grow in a masculine kick-ass startup culture

- Join our Diversity event at Tech BBQ on 14 September

How do female entrepreneurs best respond to questions from male investors? Yes, women get different questions than men - and the answers to those questions are important. Both to the female entrepreneurs, but also in order to further diversity - and thus innovation - in Denmark. Only 1.5% of investments in Denmark go to startups with female founders even though 27% of entrepreneurs are women.

When the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship invites to an event that focuses on diversity, it is to celebrate the educational initiatives that help to boost diversity in the otherwise masculine entrepreneurial environment.


At the event, you will be inspired how to empower female students in their dreams about entrepreneurship and innovation, you will learn about how to create a feminine network that strengthens drive and spirit, how entrepreneurs best apply both the masculine and the feminine values, and what answers women can give to biased questions from investors.
