THENEXTWOMEN100 7th EDITION

heading ding

On May 28th, 2018 TheNextWomen proudly launched the seventh edition of TheNextWomen100 during TheNextWomen100 Diner: the one hundred most successful and influential female entrepreneurs in The Netherlands. This year, we focus on the power of network, on women who dare to be great, who dare to take risks, plus who have become role models for the next generation of ambitious women. They share knowledge, contacts and access to capital. Some are new to this community. And finally, we celebrate serial and exit entrepreneurs and investors. Women who founded, built and then sold companies, and who now invest. They close the circle

Congratulations to TheNextWomen100 2018!

COMMITTEE OF RECOMMENDATION!

heading ding

TheNextWomen100 is based on extensive research, a survey selecting on hard criteria such as turnover, number of employees and substantial interest of the enterprises, while at the same time focusing on the digital and transformative power of the entrepreneurs, their function as a role model, and their vision for the future. A large Committee of Recommendation supports our research team with their expertise, network and critical eye.
ABOUT THENEXTWOMEN100

heading ding

TheNextWomen100 aims to promote an inclusive eco-system of entrepreneurs and enterprises. In this eco-system startups, investors, entrepreneurs and corporate businesses bear the responsibility towards one another to stimulate the economy, by advising and investing in each other. Female leaders are under-represented in this eco-system, causing the Dutch economy to miss out on important growth opportunities. Only 8% of all high-growth entrepreneurs are women; only 4% of all investors are women; and only 5% of female startups successfully gain access to venture capital. What’s more, women entrepreneurs have a harder time breaking through the 1 million euros turnover barrier. By giving visibility to today’s most important and innovative female leaders, and to leading female tech and high-growth startups, TheNextWomen stimulates the entire eco-system, while showing both male and female investors that there is healthy deal flow. TheNextWomen100 nominees stimulate each other. We also ask TheNextWomen100 to actively support startups. To further promote this economic cycle and a healthy and inclusive eco-system, we launched TheNextWomen Crowd Fund, allowing experienced female leaders to invest in female startups. TheNextWomen is the only research & development project, event, network and fund that focuses on bringing together experienced female entrepreneurs and innovative startups.
