The network for investors and founders

Innovation needs diversity. That’s why we want to support founders and young entrepreneurs with knowledge, creativity, capital and our fantastic network so that they have the chance to grow faster and more successfully.

Sponsored by

Female investors

Investors get to know exciting startups with female founders or co-founders through our network.

We connect potential investors with each other and thus facilitate every conceivable form of financial investment.

We also want to encourage women with an interest in startups 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 an initial insight into the investor landscape and prepares them for their first investments.

Founders

As successful and experienced 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. We also offer founders the opportunity to develop themselves and their ideas through a wide range of webinars, information 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. We are already very well networked in the German entrepreneurial, managerial and academic landscape. Let’s start together today!

THE MOTIVATION
of our investors

"If we want more women to set up companies, we need a more female investor landscape. This is female empowerment in the best sense of the word. By participating in encourageventures, I am supporting committed female entrepreneurs and an idea that I believe in."

MARTINA PFEIFER / FINANCE EXPERT – INVESTOR – BUSINESS ANGEL

"Innovation needs diversity. And the go-getters, like the founders of encourageventures. Anyone who underestimates female-led start-ups has not yet arrived in the future. With our investment, we are already leading the way."

STEPHANIE BSCHORR / CEO HTG WIRTSCHAFTPRÜFUNGS GMBH – FORMER VDU PRESIDENT

"The 'glass ceiling' also exists in the start-up world. We also need more diverse teams in the VC funds so that the potential of start-ups founded by women will no longer be underestimated."

INA SCHLIE / DIPLOMA ECONOMIST – SUPERVISORY BOARD – BUSINESS ANGEL
