The Food Startup Incubator Weihenstephan (FSIWS) of the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences (HSWT), together with the International University (IU) and the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship (SCE ), offers the free online short program "How to become a female founder?" for women interested in starting a business. Every spring (approx. March to July), experts provide valuable tips on start-up-related topics such as funding, negotiating, creating a business model and legal aspects in around fifteen live online events.
Zusätzlich stehen neun online Webinare zur Verfügung, um die wesentlichen Schritte der Gründung immer wieder nachzuholen.

The program successfully contributes to raising the visibility of women with innovative business ideas and increasing the number of female founders. Did you know? Most company founders in Germany are still male. Although the proportion of female founders is increasing, it is currently only around 16 percent. A particular challenge for female founders is that they receive less capital for their ventures, as potential investors often rate women lower than men. In contrast, companies founded by female founders are usually more successful than companies founded exclusively by men.
