Meet top female entrepreneurs @ HHL

For the second time now, Women@HHL and the Female Founders initiative of HHL will participate in the Women Entrepreneurship Week 2019 (WEW), a global movement celebrated this year at 200+ universities in 30 countries!

On 25th October 2019, we would like to invite you to a panel discussion with three female entrepreneurs and investors, who will share their experiences about common challenges faced along the (female) entrepreneurial journey. The panel will be hosted by Prof. Dr. Vivek Velamuri.

Finally, you get the opportunity to NETWORK with likeminded people over some drinks and snacks.
