Rockstart launches FEMTEQ!
With women underrepresented in the tech industry, it is important to foster and support the women that are in the sector. That’s why we launched FEMTEQ with INCO supported by The JPMorgan Chase Foundation. FEMTEQ is a program to boost female entrepreneurship and diversity in the tech industry by providing access to the partners’ networks and expertise. The program empowers aspiring female entrepreneurs to help them reach their full potential. We are excited to announce that we have selected five female entrepreneurs to enter this month-long program.
The five female entrepreneurs will join the Rockstart co-working space and take part in four focused workshops to develop commercial, entrepreneurial and personal skills, and social events. These women will have access to our network of 130+ successful entrepreneurs and 300+ mentors.
We are proud that at Rockstart – on average – 56% of our full-time employee are women. We see the importance of diversity in the workforce and are proud to work towards this with FEMTEQ. The five women joining this program come from diverse backgrounds and work in multiple different sectors of the tech industry. Each one brings with her something unique to the program; we are excited to see these five women grow throughout the program.
“I am extremely happy to see more women creating and building interesting deep tech companies. This changes the perception and role of women in the startup world. We at Rockstart are excited to be working together with INCO and JP Morgan Chase Co towards the same goal – to bring more equal gender distribution and diversity to the industry. FEMTEQ is just a starting point for this change, but we are proud to be able to provide an opportunity to female founders to get access to knowledge and network as well as to inspire them to keep growing and working in the tech industry!” Daria Reutovich Accelerator Program Manager
We’re happy to share the five female entrepreneurs with you!
