We believe that talented women deserve to be heard for their ideas and early-stage businesses.

In our 3-stage program, 200 participants will join a community of practice for aspiring female entrepreneurs and attend webinars, entrepreneurship training sessions, and meetings with experts from the U.S., Poland, Ukraine, and Hungary.

In the next phase, 16 participants will be invited to take part in a free, tailor-made acceleration program.

The competitive acceleration program will result in a cash prize for one winning participant to further support their ideas. The Energeia Project is funded by the Nasdaq Foundation, global advocates of female talent and entrepreneurship.

Meet our mentors

Business Leaders of CEE within your reach

For every startupper, it is essential to connect with experienced veterans: people who not only have the knowledge and skills to support your success, but who can also inspire and help focus your attention on the most pressing issues.

Criticism is fuel for every early-stage business. If you prove you know how to respond to it, your mentor will likely open doors to you, share insights and advice, and even make introductions across their valuable networks.

Energeia (greek: ἐνέργειᾰ) is the theme of our program. Aristotle used the word to describe the realization of potential, which every founder and pioneer seeks. Over two thousand years later, the expression speaks to the most essential attributes of every founder and pioneer: hard work and proactiveness.

Energeia is also the common denominator of our mentors. Show your pro-activity and enlight our exterts.
