Startup school for fellow female founders
We guide women through the early stages of starting a company. From helping them select the right idea to work on, to building an MVP and testing with customers. All while joining a community of women who are in the same startup stage.
Made for everyone
All you need is a start-up idea! We have the tools to make it happen. Join the 6-week startup school and build your business in a community of other Nordic women founders.
Fits your schedule
After getting accepted, you'll gain access to an online learning platform where new courses unlock as you progress. Watch at your own pace, as the Startup School is flexible.
No fees, no binding
We want to remove as many barriers as possible at the earliest stage of your journey. That is why our programme is free, as this is the best way to even the playing field for women founders.
No stage is too early for us. Do you have a problem you really want to solve? Do you have an idea you’ve been thinking about? Have you already started a business but are struggling with getting it up and running?
The program is open for all women who are based in the Nordics. We create a fun and safe space for women founders who have an idea, but are not sure where to begin with their startup journey.
You don't need to have a solid idea for a solution, or a business model, we'll help you achieve that.
Select the right idea to work on and create a vision for your startup.

Startup School - Enroll now
The Startup School runs twice a year, in Spring and Autumn. You can sign up at any point, and we will get back to you when we have open applications for an upcoming cohort. The Startup School is free, there's no price or equity attached to it.
We are on a mission to create and fund more women founders. And we want to do that with practical tools and see tangible outcomes. We are a dedicated and experienced team, having worked on both sides - as investors and founders.
My co-founder is male, can he join?
The short answer is: no. The Startup School has intentionally been built for women founders, and while we welcome men to join and support the initiative in many different ways, they can't join the Startup School.
Is the Startup School really free?
Yes. The Startup School is completely free. We have made a conscious decision to make the Startup School free to remove any barriers that women might have when starting a company.
Do I need to be fulltime on my startup to join the School?
No, most of the women in our cohort are working on their startup while having a full-time job. The Startup School prepares you to test your idea before you are ready to leave your job and do this full time.
My startup is only an idea, can I still join?
Yes! The Startup School is designed for women who are at the earliest stage possible. When you have an idea, but are not sure where to start.
