Women today are half as likely to start a business than their male counterparts. When they finally have established their startup, female entrepreneurs too often encounter implicit gender bias. Especially in the tech sector, the obstacles faced by women are magnified. The FEMTEQ program empowers aspiring female entrepreneurs to help them reach their full potential.

What is FEMTEQ?

The FEMTEQ program is a launchtrack program for female founders. Selected female entrepreneurs participate in a month-long program to launch their startup. The program includes workshops to develop commercial, entrepreneurial & personal skills, mentorship and social online events. It will also include access to Rockstart’s network of 150+ portfolio companies and 400+ investors and mentors.

How do I participate?

Currently the program is not live yet. Once we are live, we will be looking for women based in the Netherlands with an entrepreneurial mindset who are thinking about starting their own company. If you’d like us to keep you updated, please contact us at
