Navigating Networking and Building Alliances for Female Founders

About this event: What networks are crucial when starting-up? What strategies can help you build meaningful connections


Networking plays a critical role for the success of women in entrepreneurship and professional careers . While access to networks has increasingly been recognized as an important way to empower women and address inequalities in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, it is important to master your own style and strategy for networking in a male-dominated environment. Holding to some guiding principles from our guest keynote speaker and an inspiring team of female founders will help you grasp your networking skills and already practice the learnings in a safe and inclusive environment.

Join us alongside an engaged team of successful female founders and professionals to gain inspiration and actionable insights to build your strategies to leverage your networks – whether to find investors, assemble teams, or build your circle of allies for your business and ideas!

Through a keynote and three roundtables, connect with inspiring leaders and founders who will share their experiences, highs, lows and resilience stories! Ask them your burning questions in the round tables, discuss your ideas with like-minded peers and connect with supportive players from the Swiss start-up ecosystem during a networking brunch.
