AWA Denmark Sponsored European Winner

Earlier this year, AWA Denmark decided to sponsor the Lean in the EU Women in Business Angel project which is co-founded by the European Union. There is a lot of female talent within the startup communities but there is also still quite a bit of bias in this World which is why it is important to showcase more female founders.

The purpose of LEAN IN THE EU WOMEN BUSINESS ANGEL COMMUNITY is to stimulate women in recognizing their role as leader within the business sector, engage them for proper training and get them ready for investing. The project will hopefully result in an increased number of WBAs in the EU, supporting women Entrepreneur’s and startups in boosting their growth.

The Danish finals were held at the AWA Denmark office a couple of months ago and the winner got to attend the finals in Modena, Italy on December 11th where there was a large community of EU partners and the participant got to network with investors, other Founders and EU partners from around the world that support Women Entrepreneurs. The winner and representing Denmark, was Frederikke Schmidt from the startup Roccamore.

At the finals in Italy, Roccamore won the competition and the titel “Best Female Founder of the Year 2018”. Congratulations to Frederikke and Roccamore – we are proud to support such talent.
