Virtual Female Founders' Day 2021 of the Rhine-Neckar Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK)

3 pm - 6:30 pm

On the virtual Female Founders' Day, you can learn interesting facts about founding a company so that you are well prepared to start your own business. With storytelling, interviews and expert lectures, experienced female founders and experts are available online.

You are a founder or young entrepreneur and would like to inform yourself and exchange ideas? On September 30, 2021 our IHK StarterCenter offers you this opportunity!

In the beginning there is the idea, in the end then your own company and professional success: But it is not just one skill that makes a founder successful. Rather, it's a combination of different skills combined with courage, passion and visions for the future. Three female founders report on how they managed to make it happen and what their personal experiences have been. In the interview, they will answer the moderator's questions.

In the subsequent presentations, you will gain insights into topics such as "Digitizing Business Models", "Digital Visibility and Online Marketing", "Financing and Funding" and "Freelance Startups".

Via the chat you can actively participate and address your questions to the founders and speakers.
