HER.REAKTOR was created with much love and great motivation by Stefanie van Laak and Sascha Schubert

Figures from the World Economic Forum show that the growing number of women-led start-ups is not reflected in their share of the financing volume. There are many reasons for this, but they are not insurmountable. Financial planning, law and taxes, product-market fit, go-to-market and growth marketing, sales and networking – the skills that female founders build up in HER.REAKTOR are initially no different from conventional programs. 

After all, no company run by women will make it onto the market through empowerment alone. Our female founders are competing for the same money as their male counterparts. Our focus therefore remains on preparing the participants for investments. Rather, it is the framework conditions that we are changing with HER.REAKTOR.

Stefanie van Laak, Program Director HER.REAKTOR

Germany needs more female startup founders, and these founders need a different ecosystem. The current funding and support landscape has been built on male success patterns. Pushing female founders through a „male“ system with more money barely increases the number of women entrepreneurs. Something unique is needed. And that’s what we aim to develop. We support and guide differently. And in doing so, we pioneer new research.

We are committed to creating an environment where female founders can thrive, with tailored support that recognizes and nurtures their unique strengths and challenges. Join us in reshaping the entrepreneurial landscape and fostering innovation through diversity.
