About the Collective

The Collective was initiated in 2022 by SICTIC and startup days, namely by Dr. Cornelia Gut and Dr. Dominik Isler. They recognized that many initiatives and organizations foster diversity and female entrepreneurship, but an overview and coordination were missing. To close this gap, the startup days decided to take up this coordination, with Melanie Kovacs in the leading role.
