Studies show that if we address the gender gap in entrepreneurship and fuel the growth of female-founded and gender diverse startups it will unleash new ideas, services, and products into our markets. This is our goal the 19th November, when Female Founders of the Future hosts the annual Women's Entrepreneurship Day at KLUB in Copenhagen. There will be drinks and food from female founders during the event.

If we unintentionally can create structures for inequality, then we intentionally can create structures for equality. This is where we unlock untapped potential.

The organizers of the event is Female Founders of the Future (FFF); a Danish non-profit association with the goal of promoting the number of entrepreneurs among women. FFF works to make Denmark an even better place to start and scale your own business for all.

November 19 is appointed by the Mayor of New York to be Women’s Entrepreneurship Day. WED Ambassadors organizes events around the world to celebrate and support female entrepreneurship in 144 different countries on this day.
