Empowering females and organizations on the path to more gender parity to enable sustainable and profitable businesses

Our Story

In 2019 we started as a community of changemakers with the goal to enable more women to be at the top of the table and create a sustainable future & combat climate change.
The initiative was originally created to support women in the EIT Climate-KIC accelerator programs back in 2019.
Since then we have been holding regular events to connect & support women in green tech & social impact entrepreneurship & grown a large network of women from across the world.

In 2024, the network has developed into a large network of WoMeXn across the globe to enable diverse leadership to thrive in the Climate Innovation ecosystem.

Our Vision

Create a sutainable and secure future for all of us

Our Mission

Balancing the system to establish profitable, fair and future-proof businesses globally

Our Goals

Increase the number of WoMeXn in climate and tech companies, VCs, Start Up and enpower WoMeXn to be entrepreneurs
Increase the percentage of WoMeXn leaders in corporate to balance the system and drive more climate action
Establish diversity criteria in term sheets to enable a different culture from the beginning

Time for ACTIONS not WORDS!

We believe that gender parity in leaderships is key to successful climate action. With this initiative we want to enable more inclusiveness and enable more women to enter the field of climate tech & innovation. We want to bring men and women at the table to break down barriers, create opportunities & solve problems together.

We work across all industry Silos & enable access to people, investment & tools for women in this space that are not available today. We will leverage the potential of other similar networks to collaborate, elevate & enable global change.

Relationships & access are important for under-represented groups to succeed in these critical new industries & have significant impact on how successful humanity is in creating a more sustainable future for life on earth!
