As we explored in one of our last “Women Energize Women” events, female entrepreneurs are faced with numerous gender-related obstacles. Many of these obstacles are institutionalized and reflect the domination of male narratives in the business world. Especially when trying to obtain financing for a business, women have a noticeable disadvantage.
This event aims to bring together experts on investment and financing and to let them answer the questions of female participants.
- How do I get investment ready?
- Which types of funds exist for me?
- What do I have to do to make my portfolio stick out?
- How can I tackle gender biases in the investor’s interview?
After a short presentation of the experts and their respective areas of expertise, the audience will be invited to ask all their questions. This event aims at supporting female entrepreneurs in their quest to obtain investments by opening a space for questions on best practices, dos and don’ts and useful tips for the search of investors.
The “Women Energize Women” (#womenenergize) campaign is a communication initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK). It is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE) within the scope of BMWK’s global project Bilateral Energy Partnerships. The aim of “Women Energize Women” is to inform, mobilize, inspire and connect women around the world who are working to advance the energy transition.
The virtual event takes place on
25 April 2022 02:00 PM – 03:30 PM CEST via MS Teams.
The names of the experts on investment and financing will be announced soon.
