On August 21st, The Amsterdam Creative Entrepreneurs (ACE) Collective, a peer-peer initiative of The Humblebrag, invites curious minds to join an intimate evening of learning and inspiration diving deep into the topic of female entrepreneurship.
A recent McKinsey report on gender equality reveals that even in The Netherlands, a country which scores well on many indicators of gender equality, “women’s potential on the labor market remains significantly untapped.”
Not only is there a distinct lack of women in leadership positions, but even scarcer numbers of female entrepreneurs. That's why this summer we’re shining a light on Amsterdam’s leading women who have dedicated their careers to amplifying the voices of others.
The night will feature three inspiring speakers who will join us to tell their story, sharing insights as well as tips and tricks that have enabled them to thrive.
Nancy Poleon - BrandedU
Our first speaker is Nancy Poleon, Founder of BrandedU, a personal branding program built to increase the visibility of women in business. Nancy says:
“Women make up 50% of the population, and my job will not be done until we achieve 50% female leadership!
Rixt Herklotz - The Next Women
Our second speaker is Rixt Herklotz, Operations Director at The Next Women (TNW), a global community of ambitious female founders born in The Netherlands. Rixt will outline the kind of extra support female entrepreneurs need to ensure a “level playing field” and how networks such as TNW can help.
Mariska Nunes - Maris Life
Our third speaker is Mariska Nunes, Co-Founder of Maris Life, a unique business concept to support single parents to thrive. Mariska will talk about the vision for this concept, and the journey of scaling this into a successful business that thrives.
The all inclusive night out, will be held at the stunning Your Space location on The Herengracht, a unique business concept founded by two sisters from Sydney. Hosted by Lucy von Sturmer, founder of The Humblebrag, we invite all curious minds - both men and women - to join us!
