TheNextWomen100



TheNextWomen100 Five-year Anniversary!

At the Innovation Summit on May 23rd 2016 TheNextWomen will proudly present its fifth edition of TheNextWomen100, a yearly publication of the one hundred most successful and influential female entrepreneurs in The Netherlands. To celebrate female entrepreneurship and our five-year anniversary TheNextWomen100 2016 will be launched as a special edition, presenting the ultimate 100 women entrepreneurs of the past five years among all our earlier nominees. TheNextWomen100 2016 will be published in Opzij Magazine, the biggest women’s magazine of The Netherlands.

Committee of Recommendation

TheNextWomen100 is based on extensive research, a survey selecting on hard criteria such as turnover, number of employees and substantial interest of the enterprises, while at the same time focusing on the digital and transformative power of the entrepreneurs, their function as a role model, and their vision for the future. A large Committee of Recommendation supports our research team with their expertise, network and critical eye.

About TheNextWomen100

TheNextWomen100 aims to promote an inclusive eco-system of entrepreneurs and enterprises. In this eco-system startups, investors, entrepreneurs and corporate businesses bear the responsibility towards one another to stimulate the economy, by advising and investing in each other. Female leaders are under-represented in this eco-system, causing the Dutch economy to miss out on important growth opportunities. Only 8% of all high-growth entrepreneurs are women; only 4% of all investors are women; and only 5% of female startups successfully gain access to venture capital. What’s more, women entrepreneurs have a harder time breaking through the 1 million euros turnover barrier. By giving visibility to today’s most important and innovative female leaders, and to leading female tech and high-growth startups, TheNextWomen stimulates the entire eco-system, while showing both male and female investors that there is healthy deal flow. TheNextWomen100 nominees stimulate each other. We also ask TheNextWomen100 to actively support startups. To further promote this economic cycle and a healthy and inclusive eco-system, we launched TheNextWomen Crowd Fund, allowing experienced female leaders to invest in female startups. TheNextWomen is the only research & development project, event, network and fund that focuses on bringing together experienced female entrepreneurs and innovative startups.
