Digital Entrepreneurship Hub | Freie Universität Berlin

MISSION & APPLICATION

Women entrepreneurship is on the rise and contributes considerably to a wide diversity of (digital) products and services within startup ecosystems worldwide.

The “WoMenventures” seminar builds upon this potential and highlights a woman’s perspective on venture creation processes. The aim is to promote an entrepreneurial mindset among students (BA, MA) and scientists (PhD, Postdoc) interested in learning about the contribution of women’s (digital) entrepreneurship within the Berlin start-up ecosystem.

To this end, all participants work in interdisciplinary teams on their own ideas in order to reflect on the opportunities and challenges of implementing innovative values in a practical way.

Experienced female entrepreneurs actively support the teams and provide input on various topics, such as value creation, pitching, a lean start-up model, marketing and financing of their own companies.

The seminar is designed in a flexible, inverted-classroom format and divided into three phases:

Summer Term 2021
Course Kickoff 19. Mai
Online Class 01 June–01 August
Summer School 02 August–06 August
Examination August 2021 (for ECTS)

It is possible to obtain 5 to 6 ECTS credits for your participation, but the requirements vary depending on your subject area and degree program. For more information, please contact Franziska Schmitt.
