Halfway through the Femme Forward Startup Founders Program

      Halfway through the Femme Forward Startup Founders Program We can hardly believe it – our Femme Forward Startup Founders Pilot Training in Germany is in full swing, and time is flying by! Originally, we had planned to publish an article at the beginning of this exciting journey, but the demand was so high that our course with nearly 50 participants filled up in no time. Now that we’ve reached the halfway point of the curriculum, let’s take a look at what has happened so far and the exciting experiences we’ve already gathered. But let’s start from the beginning of our programme: In September 2023, we, the team from tech and teach gGmbH, invited everyone to the physical kick-off event in Düsseldorf, and we were overwhelmed by the response – over 70 guests accepted our invitation! After warm words of welcome, including those from Theresa Winkels, the head of the Düsseldorf Economic Development Office, we dived deep into the „Women in Tech“ theme with keynotes, including Güncem Campagna (CEO tech and teach gGmbH) followed by a panel discussion. During the subsequent get-together, we had the opportunity to further explore these important topics, and the feedback was simply overwhelming. Our guests couldn’t have been more diverse and inspiring. On October 9th, the moment finally arrived, and the 8-week online curriculum of the Femme Forward Startup Program began. Over a dozen experts and lecturers from various fields are conducting online live workshops, Q&A sessions, and providing inspiring insights into their individual career paths. In total, the program encompasses over 60 hours of training content, where our participants are learning the fundamentals to either start their own tech startup or fill knowledge gaps in various areas. You can find more information about this here: https://www.techandteach.de/ In parallel, we encourage networking and support within our exclusive Femme Forward Slack community. The diversity of our participants‘ backgrounds is truly remarkable, encompassing various subjects, industries, age groups, and origins. We, at tech and teach, are excited about the individual and enthusiastic feedback we’ve received, which hints at the impact Femme Forward is having on the careers and founding stories of our participants. For those who couldn’t join us this time, we recommend signing up for our newsletter to ensure that you’re part of the next cohort of aspiring female startup founders. We look forward to shaping the future of the tech industry together and creating many more inspiring stories.
