Academic Entrepreneurship: Why and How to Promote Female Founders?
It is crucial that university members can implement their research outcomes in start-ups and that they are being supported in the founding process by the university. This is a decisive part of an academic culture which values the social impact of applied research.
However, what are the reasons that female researchers found less start-ups than their male counterparts? Which measures are needed to change this? This event aims to provide a platform to discuss the need for the support of female founders and how universities can overcome gender biases in academic entrepreneurship.
