Female Entrepreneurship

Why mentoring the women in Health sector is it so important? First, there are still steeper uphill for women founders. Only 15,5 % of founders in Europe are women. Secondly, a specialized field like healthcare, demands more background know-how and practical tips that require a lot of learning by doing, failing, and succeeding to master. We want to create more startup-entrepreneurs in each StartUpCity and to foster the exciting ones under the umbrella of the historic and pioneer bottom-up #EiA – European innovation Area impulse among others by cities, villages, and remote areas.

The event / seminar is organized by StartUpCity Vantaa and the coalition of six Finnish cities, 6Aika growth Ecosystem -project

The high-level mentoring program is implemented by Impulse4women (implementation leader for women at the bottom-up #EiA – European innovation Area).


The Global StartUpCities is an initiative behind the pioneer bottom-up #EiA – European innovation Area. This bottom-up movement focuses on innovations outside big hubs, with focus on young people, women, and talent as it continues to widen up the initiative, securing the future success of innovation in Europe and globally, to achieve a top-down ’European innovation Area’ with the bottom-up #EiA as one of its pillars.
