WiE Breakfast at MINC, the startup house of Malmo
As part of our mission to encourage female talent and to commemorate Women’s Day on March 8th, we held an intimate breakfast with female founders, in collaboration with our partner MINC. We invited 6 female entrepreneurs to join the breakfast. During the event, the founders had the chance to network and share experiences.
At the event, we were able to learn from everyone's thriving backgrounds and paths through venture. These female talents spoke openly about their ideas, their goals, as well as their concerns and barriers. During the breakfast, they exchanged personal learnings, received support and advice from each other.
