Cologne/Germany, 12 September 2017 - dmexco believes that strong women are just as much part of success as digitalization is part of business. Together with strong partners such as The Female Quotient, Refinery29, and the Women Speaker Foundation, dmexco 2017 will launch, among other things, three campaigns that focus directly on the issues of female leadership and gender equality (https://dmexco.com/gender_equality/). In the “29 Global Trailblazers” campaign, dmexco and Refinery29 present portraits of inspiring female managers from the fields of marketing, media, and tech. Many of these women will also be participating in the “29Women Talk” and the “Women’s Leadership Table” on the dmexco stages. This year dmexco will once again collaborate with The Female Quotient to operate the dmexco Girls’ Lounge as the central meeting point for women (https://dmexco.com/the_female_quotient/). A very personal look at the issue of diversity and equality will be offered by Regina Mehler, the founder of 1ST ROW and the Women Speaker Foundation, in her interviews with dmexco celebrities on the green couch at the Congress Center North, Level 1.
The semifinalists of the dmexco and Procter & Gamble Start-up Hatch have been selected
20 founders, 4 pitches, 1 final round — that’s the procedure at the “dmexco and Procter & Gamble Start-up Hatch”, the new pitch format at dmexco (https://dmexco.com/the_start-up_hatch/).
