Frauen & Entrepreneurship

Join us at our second online matchmaking to bring together accelerators based in West Coast universities with accelerators based in German universities. This event will take place on Microsoft Teams on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at 8:30 Pacific Time/ 17:30 CET.

The topic will be on women and entrepreneurship. Anne Cocquyt, founder of THE GUILD and author of Dare to Launch, will discuss the barriers women face in pursuing their ventures – from seeking mentors to raising capital — and how higher-education-based accelerators can better support female entrepreneurship. In February 2017, Anne raised her first round of angel-funding and has rapidly grown GUILD Academy, a pre-accelerator entrepreneurship program that helps first-time female entrepreneurs launch their business Silicon-Valley-style, into a destination networking service for women with corporate and non-profit clients. Today, she is expanding internationally and attracting hundreds of ambassadors, volunteers, partners and top talent to work on creating the first global marketplace for women to connect to each other, to resources and the knowledge they need to expand their careers and grow their businesses. 

The event is organized by the German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH) San Francisco. We hope to foster connections between West Coast accelerators eager to attract German innovation and talent, as well as German accelerators seeking to better understand the landscape of Silicon Valley and the U.S. West Coast and strengthen their partnerships.
