The initiative complements DT's successful scholarship program, which is available to female founders, mothers-to-be and mothers of young children participating in the Mentoring Program.
Strengthening the role of women, mothers-to-be and mothers in the business sector is a priority for Design Terminal. The scholarship program, launched jointly with the Ministry of Human Capacities at the end of last year, supports the strengthening of entrepreneurship and attitudes, the reconciliation of family and career, and the return of mothers to the labor market. Starting in fall 2019, the scholarship program will be complemented by a series of events aimed at opening a new platform that contributes to the stenghtening of women in the business, startup and tech worlds, and creates a valuable community where participants can help each other. Going beyond traditional formats, the events take place in an exciting, thought-provoking way, and participation is open to both men and women.
At last night’s #Womentoring event, women leaders in business, politics and the startup world talked about entrepreneurship and the importance of women in business and technology. Following the discussion, prominent women in the domestic business and startup ecosystem provided unique speedmentoring to startups participating in the Mentoring Program’s fall semester. Katalin Novák, State Secretary for Family and Youth Affairs, Ministry of Human Capacities; Gabriella Csányi, co-founder and CEO of Like Locals and co-founder of Pine, and Sára Fábián, founder of Amigos for Children, shared their experiences on the topic. The discussion was moderated by Irma Horváth, a community-building, solution-focused coach.
