How to break down borders as a female founder in tech

Trade Council New York and Female Founders of the Future has the pleasure of hosting an afternoon networking event with some of Denmark’s most inspirational founders and leaders in tech.

There continues to be a large gap between the number of male and female founders who start and scale their own business. A gap that represents a massive potential.

Join us for an inspiring afternoon and get insights on how to scale your business outside Denmark and build transatlantic bridges for partnerships and business opportunities.

You will learn more about the latest initiative "Female Founders in Tech" Masterclass where 15 Danish female founders will be selected for a 1-week program on April 20-24 in New York.

“Female Founders in Tech” is organized and hosted by the Consulate General of Denmark and Female Founders of The Future (FFOF) who will also talk about why it's vital to build a transatlantic partnerships between the US and Danish startup eco-system.
