The influence of women in society, business and politics is growing, but in terms of leadership positions, earning and career opportunities, the gender gap is still strongly noticeable. This also applies to the start-up area: female founders are still underrepresented and find it difficult to access financing through venture capital or scaling-up. The corona pandemic is also hitting women worldwide much more severely than men. This is especially true for developing and emerging countries. But it is precisely there that the potential of female start-ups is great: societal challenges are tackled here with socio-ecological innovations.
