Program

Feel like an inspiring conversation? An opportunity for new collaborations? Or just a stimulating encounter with a good glass of wine? Join us at the Eindhoven Innovation Café. The spot where people from the arts, design, research and technology interact. We are aiming for a weekly program full of inspiring pitches, expert talks, discussions as well as workshops, lasting up to half an hour parallel to the drinks. English spoken. Of course.

SEPTEMBER 24

 

EHV INNOVATION CAFÉ 

 

17:30 – 19:30 pm Drinks & talks
17:45 – 18:15 pm Panel discussion by Female Ventures

Disruptive innovations are the main drivers of economic prosperity and societal changes. They change the way society and enterprises do things, the way we communicate, consume, work, and spend our free time to a fundamental degree. Even new species like smartphone zombies are born.

Female Ventures Eindhoven is happy and proud to bring back our events post-lock-down with the topic of Eindhoven as a location for innovation and startup ecosystem. What are the chances and opportunities, but also the challenges and bottlenecks for the greater region to take a stronger position among the European startup ecosystems and become future-proof?

By nature, startups lack resources and therefore investments become true enablers for growth. Recently, a number of Dutch venture capitalists announced they will intensify efforts in driving diversity in their investment decisions of which the Borski Fund with their slogan “Borski Fund investing in companies that reduce the gender gap – Success has no gender” is one of the more prominent examples. While these initiatives are a significant step towards a positive development, the very basic settings need to be secured first. This includes an education system that facilitates creativity and out of the box thinking, healthy and dynamic support and ecosystem, stakeholders providing support to test and validate ideas, and progressive businesses that apply these in real markets.
