Empowering women is a vital step towards uplifting entire communities. When we provide support to women entrepreneurs, we unleash a domino effect of positive change by generating employment opportunities, driving economic growth, and contributing to local development. It’s a fact that by helping women, we help everyone. Here are some key facts.

The impact of women entrepreneurs on our economy cannot be overstated. Their passion and dedication to starting and growing businesses not only creates jobs and fosters innovation, but also drives economic growth. By supporting and investing in women entrepreneurs, we can unlock their full potential, leading to even greater economic prosperity for all.
Diversity is the key to unlocking innovation. As a society, we must support women entrepreneurs, as they bring a wealth of unique perspectives to the table. By doing so, we can tap into a vast reservoir of creativity and problem-solving abilities, leading to a brighter and more prosperous future for all.
Empowering women to lead businesses can have a significant impact on reducing unemployment rates and fostering the growth of dynamic and sustainable local economies. By supporting women entrepreneurs, we can unlock new employment opportunities, drive innovation, and build stronger communities.
Investing in women entrepreneurs is a vital step towards achieving true gender equality. By supporting them, we can break down societal barriers and challenge traditional gender norms that have held women back for far too long. This not only empowers women to participate more fully in economic activities but also creates a ripple effect of positive change that benefits entire society.
Empowered women entrepreneurs are a driving force behind the development and well-being of their communities. By investing in local initiatives, charities, and community projects, they contribute to the growth of their communities. As a result, their efforts create a ripple effect of positive change that benefits everyone.
Inspirational women entrepreneurs are paving the way for future generations. They are breaking down gender stereotypes and proving that success knows no gender. As role models, their achievements are powerful tools that inspire other women and young girls to carve out their own entrepreneurial paths.
Supporting women entrepreneurs is a vital step towards achieving financial inclusion. By providing them with access to resources, capital, and markets, we can empower women economically, and this will immensely contribute to reducing poverty and inequality. Let’s join hands to support women entrepreneurs and create a better and more equal world.
Our story

After leaving an unfulfilling job, our founder Val Racheeva came to Berlin in search of a new career opportunity that could make a positive impact on people’s lives. She started attending entrepreneurship events and quickly noticed the lack of women in the room. Despite meeting many brilliant women with startup ideas, they were holding themselves back due to a lack of support.

To address this issue, Val Racheeva began organizing meetings where women could come together to share their ideas, support each other, find co-founders, and learn from female role models. She recognized an opportunity to use her experience, and leadership skills and apply her values to contribute to positive change. As more women joined these meetings, the idea of Female Founder Space was born in 2014. 

Since then, Female Founder Space has organized over 300 events, including workshops, webinars, networking, and co-working days in 13 European cities across 9 countries. These events and workshops have helped catalyze a new chapter in the entrepreneurial journeys of over 15,000 women.
