Press Release | SHE LEADS in TECH | 17th of November 2022
YES!Delft launches a new conference: SHE LEADS in TECH with a focus on female-led impact startups. A co-production with Erasmus Center for Entrepreneurship and Erasmus Enterprise.
The annual SHE LEADS event of the Erasmus Enterprise Community in Rotterdam gets a Delft-based partner event: With SHE LEADS in TECH, the leading tech incubator YES!Delft in collaboration with Erasmus Center for Entrepreneurship and Erasmus Enterprise, launch a new conference platform for (future) female founders and leaders in tech. SHE LEADS in TECH focus on impact-driven female founders with a focus on impact by technology: health tech, climate tech and deep tech.
With SHE LEADS in TECH YES!Delft, we want to showcase outstanding female tech leaders and female-led startups from YES!Delft and the wider ecosystem, as well as connect future (female) talent to tech startups through YES!Talents. YES!Talents is a new service by YES!Delft that helps to build winning startup teams and recruit the right talent.
Anna Handschuh, Managing Director, YES!Delft Rotterdam about the new conference:
“You cannot be what you cannot see. We have two goals with SHE LEADS in TECH: First, we want to inspire the next generation of female tech entrepreneurs by showcasing the startups of great female tech leaders. Secondly, we want to build a community around this outstanding female talent. From my experience, female founders are substantially more driven by creating a significant impact on health and climate through tech. We want to give these female tech trailblazers a stage with their great companies and technologies. The challenges ahead of us are gigantic – they range from the age of pandemics to the escalating climate crisis. These women add a much-needed, new perspective to the male-dominated tech sector and make sure that we have fantastic high-impact technologies, health tech, climate tech and deep tech.”
With SHE LEADS in TECH, we would like to create an inclusive community for (emerging) female tech leaders. And SHE LEADS in TECH is for anyone interested in impact-driven entrepreneurship in health tech, climate tech and deep tech and who is looking for outstanding talent in this space.
SHE LEADS in TECH is jointly organised by the Erasmus Enterprise community consisting of the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship, YES!Delft, ERBS – Erasmus Research & Business Support, and in collaboration with partners from the innovation ecosystems from Erasmus University Rotterdam and TU Delft.
