Despite all the conquests in women rights for the last two centuries and being the fight for gender parity livelier than ever, women are still far from achieving a fair share in leading positions.  

In the business sector the disparity is worrying, as it is getting worse with the current economic crisis. According to Atomico’s report on The State of European Tech 2022, only 14% of founders and 28% of leaders are women. Moreover, 87% of European VC funding is raised by male-only companies and female-only companies saw a decrease of 3% to 1% between 2018 and 2022. The barriers faced by women are even higher for younger women as seed-stage funding shows the most pronounced difference. 

The European Commission (EC) is determined to close this gap and develops many instruments to support women entrepreneurs. Besides the EIC Women Leadership Programme, several support tools and networks, and many initiatives through the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), the EC also offers financial support and mentoring through the Women TechEU programme. 


This e-pitching will gather the following female-led startups:
