How FEM-START works


FEM-START grows the community both online and offline. Meet us online on our social platforms and meet us offline during our events and of course, the FEM-START Up Awards. The FEM-START Up Awards is an annual event to get female entrepreneurs together to pitch their ideas and business. We offer the opportunity to pitch your company to a jury of experts and investors, meet your peers and win a grand prize!


Education is the starting point for gaining knowledge and growing your business. To facilitate and support female entrepreneurs, we’ve started the FEM-START modules. The first module teaches all the ins and outs of start-up funding and how to get started on developing and growing your financial structure. More modules will be rolling out soon in order to help you and your business grow.


Through our non-profit organization FEMpreneurhulp, we offer free mentoring sessions with seasoned experts in different fields, ranging from finance to business strategy. In order to support our FEMpreneurs we aim to provide guidance and coaching to ensure your growth. With our work through FEMpreneurhulp, we grow our community and help our mentees meet a new network of peers and mentors.
