Female Entrepreneurship

Anyone can start a business! – that is our guiding principle in the “Startup-Port” association, which we carry into the world with our offers and contributions. However, some tendencies can still be identified in the startup scene today that point to unequal opportunities. For example, women are still significantly underrepresented as founders of startups and are correspondingly less perceived by the public.

The reasons for this imbalance are complex. On this page, you will therefore find offers that are explicitly aimed at women.
