Event description


In this event, we bring together two successful entrepreneurs and high profile experts to hear from those who work with innovation, and to discuss obstacles, challenges, successes and opportunities for innovative and entrepreneurial women.

Taking place at Studenterhuset in the heart of Aalborg, this event will get you inspired and help you navigate your career and startup opportunities working with innovation, perhaps as an entrepreneur.

With our two phenomenal guest speakers and discussion panel participants, Merethe Stjerne Thomsen and Louise Ferslev, this event is sure to inspire, educate and challenge your current perceptions of women innovators. Both Merethe and Louise will share their success stories, and hopefully give you some tips on how to get more meaning and passion in your future life and career.

Speakers will touch on a number of relevant topics including:

  • What is innovation
  • Starting a business based on your innovation.
  • What to consider before startup, and how to get in contact with the right people.
  • Recognizing business opportunities and challenging startup obstacles
  • How to use others to leverage your ideas & the power of creating with others.
  • And, much much more!

Following our speakers, there will be a Q&A Panel for the audience to ask questions. Participants are also encouraged to write down questions, that will then be read to the panel during the session.

Our evening ends with networking at the student house bar.
