FEM-START Up Awards 2021 Edition

FEM-START Up Awards 2021

Last year’s edition of the FEM-START Up Awards was a hit! The first edition was held in Hotel Casa in Amsterdam where we had a packed day with workshops by Barbara Rogoski on pitching and Tanya Pineault of PayPal on how to grow your business with PayPal.

A total of 9 female-led start-ups participated in our FEM-START Up Awards, ranging from plastic-free skincare to data-driven consultancy focused on D&I and Gender Equity. Our judges consisted of Eva de Mol of CapitalT, Joachim Goyvaert, CEO PayPal Benelux and Ireland, Katalin Tatar from ABN Amro and Marian Spier, founder of FEMSTART.

After much debate amongst the judges, the winner was announced… Marsha Goei from Breeze!
