THE INVESTOR NETWORK FOR FOUNDER WOMEN
Innovation needs diversity. That’s why we want to support female founders and young entrepreneurs with knowledge, creativity, capital and our fantastic network so that they have the chance to grow faster and more successfully.
Through our network, female investors get to know exciting start-ups with female founders or co-founders.
We connect potential female investors with each other and thus enable every type of financial investment possible.
We also want to encourage women with an interest in start-ups to become investors – for more female empowerment!
For this purpose, we offer different formats, such as webinars and info events on various investment topics like business angel investment. This gives new investors a first insight into the investor landscape and prepares them for their first investments.
As successful and experienced female entrepreneurs and managers, we support start-ups as sparring partners, mentors and consultants. We act as a non-profit intermediary between diverse-led startups and female-led smart money.
We take a holistic approach as we accompany start-ups through all phases of entrepreneurship. In addition, we offer female founders the opportunity to further develop themselves and their ideas through a wide variety of webinars, info events and networking events.
Exclusive access to our network
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” (African proverb)
Our network is meant to connect, motivate, encourage and provide a platform of exchange. Already at the start, we are very well networked in the German landscape of women entrepreneurs, managers and scientists. Let’s start together today!
Many great women are already part of the network and contribute significantly to the vision of encourageventures. Together we want to support female founders in their projects.
Become part of the network and shape the future of the start-up scene!

OF OUR INVESTORS
"If we want more women to start up, we need a more female investor landscape. This is female empowerment in the best sense. With my participation in encourageventures, I support committed female entrepreneurs and an idea I am convinced of."
"Innovation needs diversity. And female doers, like the founders of encourageventures. Anyone who underestimates female-led start-ups has not yet arrived in the future. With our investment, we're already taking the lead."
"The 'glass ceiling' also exists in the start-up world. We need more diverse teams in VC funds too, so that the potential of start-ups founded by women does not continue to be underestimated."
Successfully supported companies
Most of our female investors have been successfully supporting companies for many years.
