Female Founders is Europe’s fastest-growing community of entrepreneurial women and with their vision of re-shaping the economy and society by empowering female entrepreneurial minds. Their mission is to help solve the two biggest pain points in the European tech ecosystem, which Lisa explains very clearly is:

accelerator Grow F, which helps female-led ventures to become investment-ready and which was named as one of “Europe’s top 8 accelerators for female founders” and their leadership accelerator Lead F which helps female leaders to succeed in their careers.
