Empowering women in entrepreneurship: 10 female – led startups in Germany

Innovation Marketing Team    14 July, 2021

In Germany, only about 15% of startups are initiated by women. Sadly, the figure has been stagnant for years. Additionally, female-led startups receive significantly less Venture Capital than those owned by men. This is a shame, considering that data shows that startups founded by women achieve higher revenues and are therefore a more attractive investment. 

We at Wayra Germany use our resources and influence to bring more diversity to the startup world by explicitly supporting female entrepreneurship in multiple ways. For example, 

  • Diversity as a key performance indicator 
  • Mentorship for female entrepreneurs
  • Free data training opportunities
