Scientific research generates innovations - and it is not uncommon for this to lead to the founding of a company. However, female scientists are far less likely to take this step than male scientists. Why is that and what can we as a university do about it? This is just one of the questions that this event will address.
As an introduction, Prof. Dr. Alexander Brem will briefly present results from start-up research under the title "Female founders in Baden-Württemberg: Where will we be in 2022?"
Fortunately, it is a trend among students today to want to have "a startup". In recent years, there has already been a cultural shift toward a more positive image of business startups. But does this also apply to female students and scientists? And what is the situation like in Baden-Württemberg in particular? These and other questions will be addressed by Prof. Brem, who is mentoring one of the panelists in her start-up, in his short keynote speech. This will certainly lead to a stimulating discussion in the subsequent panel discussion on how to inspire more women for the topic of entrepreneurship.
Four female founders from different fields will talk on the panel about their path to becoming scientists and founders, about stumbling blocks and success factors, and about the balancing act between science and entrepreneurship: What tipped the scales in favor of founding a company? What hurdles does a female founder face? What strengths are needed to be successful? What support is available? What are the benefits of entrepreneurship? What are those of staying in academia? How can we succeed in combining the best of both worlds?
Four exciting biographies allow to explore how women scientists contribute to positively change the world with the results of their research and why our society needs more women founders.
Afterwards, there will be room to answer questions from the audience.
