Accelerator program for ambitious female tech founders

Female entrepreneurs only received 1% of VC funding in the Nordics - unconventional ventures

It is well documented that gender equality leads to more innovation and profitability, but women are still underrepresented in tech. If we want this to change we need to take action.

The InTech Program

The outcome is to create strong scalable investment cases ready for international expansion

We believe that gender equality is not only for women! We are for everyone who believes that we create better results and returns by focussing on diversity and embracing equality. Let’s change the narrative about gender equality!
