Every year, the Amsterdam fintech world gets together for a whole week to connect, discuss and learn. While talent, movement and innovation are abundant in the Amsterdam financial ecosystem, there’s something still lacking. Where are the female fintech founders?
Female founders in fintech
Women are a minority in the world of fintech. Female founders even more so. “In general, female founders are underrepresented”, says Don Ginsel. He is the founder of Holland Fintech and initiator of the Amsterdam Fintech Week, or XFW. “The financial world is also male-dominated, so is the world of technology. So combine all these, and there are very few startups founded by women.”
