The opportunity includes free conference tickets, travel budget (of €300), and promoting the winning startups online and on-site.
The opportunity is open for female founders with a proven business model in FinTech, InsureTech, Data Analytics, AI, Retail, E-Commerce, Travel, Mobility, sensor technologies or IoT and at seed or series A investment stage.
Application deadlines vary according to the selected conference.
