Women in Tech Acceleration Program 2022

March 28, 2022 - June 18, 2022 | Online



Why Women in Tech?

According to the report Funding in the CEE Region by European Women in VC, of all the EU venture funding in 2020, only 1% went to women-led startups, while 5% went to mixed founding and 94% to all-male teams. Due to Covid-19, the situation had immensely worsened.

At Baltic Sandbox, we believe that being crucially undervalued, female-founded startups need additional support to overwhelm the growing inequality and take their place in the sun. To change the gender diversity in CEE startups and venture capital, we are building a Women in Tech community, including educational programs for female-founded startups and female Business Angel leaders, empowering women to invest in Tech.
