The ecosystem has become increasingly aware of the issues in recent years: the vast majority agree that it shouldn’t be a boys’ club. Therefore, the ecosystem has also made significant progress in increasing gender diversity and supporting female founders in recent years.

New initiatives are constantly emerging to increase access to funding, mentors and other resources for female-led startups and to create a more inclusive and supportive ecosystem for female entrepreneurs.

Benefits for the ecosystem

While women-only initiatives may not sound like the most inclusive path, they aim to level the playing field for female entrepreneurs. By providing targeted access to funding and resources, the initiatives can help address the gender imbalance that currently exists in the startup ecosystem – for example, only a fraction of venture capital goes to female founders.

This not only empowers female-led startups, but helps foster a more diverse and inclusive startup ecosystem in general. By highlighting the achievements and successes of female entrepreneurs, these initiatives can help foster a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation where women feel welcome.

Overall, the diversity of the Danish startup ecosystem is improving, but there is still work to be done. And everyone has a stake in this development, as it has been proven time and time again that diverse teams in a diverse ecosystem create a more diverse range of startups and technologies.
