Female entrepreneurship, all start-up or what ?
last Thursday I attended an Event in Munich organized by #DMW. I was there for a Sketchnotes Event but I was very curious about the topic too. the title was „Female Entrepreneurship: alles Start-up oder was?“. It is a very interesting question by the way, do all the new Entrepreneurs are Start-ups ? or what defines this kind of new business?
At the beginning, we had a short introduction of #DMW . The DMW is a network of women who highlight women in the digital world.
Then the four speakers spoke about Start-up versus Business companies.
- Dr. Annette Leonhard-MacDonald (AdaEngine),
- Joy Spenner (ADA Accelerator),
- Kamila Stanitzek (Die Produkt Macher)
- Nils Brenert (Valtech)
They also discussed about the qualities of a woman founder, about successful organization, and other business succesfactors.
I tried to integrate speakers experiences, stories and opinions in technical environment in my Sketchnotes. At the end of the Event, we had time for a great networking and asking questions to the speakers. We were hosted by Valtech who sponsored the stage, drinks and finger foods.
About my Sketch
in such an event format (like a conference) it could be difficult to catch all what was said, because you don´t have a red thread. You have a core topic and the challenge is to define how to synthesize the discussions. I decided to highlight the take aways I heard by each speaker and I made a short sketch of them (I hope that they don´t mind about it). I used the host´s colors (#DMW) just to pimp-up my sketch.
As you see we can use Sketchnotes Event to bring a summary or to just the „take aways“ and have a great visual to use.
I hope you enjoy my sketch. Let me know ! and See you soon at another great event!
