Pitch Competition | The Grand Final

THE 10 MOST PROMISING FEMALE FOUNDERS


On October 4 TheNextWomen hosts the grand final of her international Pitch Competition. For the 7th consecutive year in a row, TheNextWomen puts emerging female founders in the spotlight. Ambitious and innovative entrepreneurs who, each in their own way, are looking to change the world. From health-tech to fashion and from AI to education, these founders are ready to scale.
We will start the day with the Amsterdam semi-finals, where the last 10 contestants will pitch for a spot in the international Grand Final, later that day. A jury of investors will select the three finalists, who will then join the finalists from London, Paris & Tunis.
All to pitch for the amazing investment of €20.000 by TheNextWomen Crowd Fund and additional prices.
