What we do

With our events, we make the digital innovation leaders of our time visible and provide concentrated female empowerment. Where else do experts, female leaders, women in IT & tech share their knowledge, stories, career paths, and experiences with such a large community? Our events enable cross-industry international networking and promote the exchange between experts, professionals, and companies. For wide-ranging, visible impulse generators who serve as role models for the professionals of tomorrow; for strong employer branding, targeted talent acquisition, and more women in all areas of the company and at all management levels.


In the last three years, we have realized over 400 successful events, none of which have been exactly the same. We individually design and comprehensively support each of our events. We are clearly oriented towards your desired criteria and corporate goals. Whether on- or offline, in a small circle, or a large event: Lean back. We’ll take care of it.

We realize the complete event, design the framework, and take over the entire organization — including the management of the participants.

We bring relevant topics to the forefront and provide experienced experts and speakers from our network.

We take care of all communication and promote your event on LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter.

We bring a dynamic, interactive community and ensure the long-term visibility of your company.

We handle all technological requirements, overseeing the technical processes, and collect & deliver the recorded footage.

Yes She Can!

Stereotypes, gender pay gap, little diversity, and too few female leaders: Even 40 years after legal equality, they are bitter reality. How can gender equality finally be realized in Germany? Our documentary YES SHE CAN shows it. Here, women speak who do not agree with this status quo. Women who try every day to make the world more diverse, who don’t let their success be influenced by prejudices. Role models who encourage and inspire. Women scientists and experts who reveal causes and strategies. Coming exclusively to Amazon Prime Video in May 2021.
