Our mission is to empower young founders who are building breakthrough products and technologies that meet Europe’s most pressing needs.

Also, we want to recognize the efforts to reduce the women investment equality gap, and change the status-quo as a woman investor and as a Venture Capital, and create a different decision making process. At the same time, we want to recognize woman entrepreneurs in the innovation arena who are driving change with their technologies and innovative solutions in the area of sustainability, deep tech and digitization.
