We plan to organize 3 to 5 events a year in Zurich, Bern and Basel. Every event will be different. Each chapter organizes events in which we want to learn from each other and create something, either workshops, co-design sessions, keynote speeches, etc.
We are convinced that establishing a deeper dialogue between men and women will ultimately lead to greater diversity. Therefore, men are welcome to selected events. Moreover we like to explore ways how to support more women for a career in tech.
Besides the regular events there will be more casual get-togethers without a specific agenda, where we meet for drinks to mingle and make new friends.
November 14, Inspiring Talks with Friederike von Waldenfels
This is our new format
15min interview with an inspiring person that works, worked, is doing some impact or had his/her life changed with Tech.
This time we have with us Friederike von Waldenfels
„The trick is moving from fear of making mistakes to fear of missing opportunities“ is the personal credo of Friederike, a young entrepreneur originally from Germany.
Her passions have always been riding a horse and computers, a reason to make a business out of it. After a career at IBM she founded reitsport.ch five years ago.
Today she runs 9 companies together with partners in different specialized markets from reitsport.ch over fischen.ch to agriculture and the veterinary field coming soon.
What is really important to the business woman? The people working for her.
Friederike strongly cares about the development of her employees. „There is nothing better when someone starts as an account manager and grows to the position of a managing director“. This makes Friederike proud. Meet and listen to the personal story of the entrepreneur who is an expert in E-Commerce and can tell you all about scaling, interface IT and business.
