We are constantly striving to increase diversity in our teams


international teams


teams with female founders

This is how we support female founders

Women in Germany found start-ups less frequently and often get stuck in the first stages of founding. This is something we want to change.

With the UnternehmerTUM Female Founders Office Hours initiative, we at XPRENEURS support female founders through these early stages:

  • With the help of high-quality feedback and
  • mentoring from top level experts in various areas.

We are supported in this mission by strong partners such as UVC, Women Start-up, and Nauta Capital, who offer office hours alongside XPRENEURS.

Are you a female founder and need support? Book a session via typeform with our experts. We are looking forward to supporting you!
