THE SPARK

Female Founder Special AWARD

The Female Founder Special Award was created by Handelsblatt and McKinsey in 2019, as even today, women are still underrepresented in management positions. Especially in the start-up tech sector, female founders are rarely found. Yet, studies clearly show that women are more strongly driven by social issues and are thus indispensable for the connection between society and business. Therefore, we want to support the many inspiring female start-ups in the tech sector, give them the recognition they deserve and give them a stage as role models for other women. In this way, we want to encourage more women to take the step into starting a business.

Do you know an inspiring founder who has already successfully established herself in the digital industry? A woman who moves the start-up scene with her voice?
