Nordic Fe:male Invest Summit


Invest in diversity.

As the Nordic tech scene continues to grow, gender diversity in the field is at a standstill. Even though it's a fact that a diverse team creates more value only 0,7% of venture capital goes into female-founded companies in Europe. This is the lowest it's been for at least ten years. We believe we can get female-founded and co-founded companies to receive more.

This year's edition of Nordic Fe:male Invest Summit will be focusing on creating that next, or very first, investment by matchmaking founders and investors. We are bringing some of the most prominent voices together on October the 12th in Malmö.

Join us as we focus on the opportunities that lie ahead and encourage more women into the startup world.
