fIVE Female Entrepreneurship Podcast: Talk with Svenja Lassen, Managing Director Germany at primeCROWD, Founder of the Female Investors Network

In this episode of fIVE, we talk with Svenja Lassen. Svenja finds her passion and thrive in how to enhance the proportion of women entrepreneurs and female investors in Germany. With #25to25 – The Female Founders Pitch, she is opening a call to action, namely to increase the portion of women entrepreneurs from 16 to 25% by the year of 2025. In recent years this number has been stagnating, and thus, it’s time to set clear goals and make change happen. The increase of women entrepreneurs positively contributes to both economic, as well as sustainable development. Through initiating the Female Investors Network, Svenja aims to enhance the number of female investors, which would also positively impact the number of start-ups led or co-led by women. Diversity matters!

fIVE Female Entrepreneurship Podcast: Talk with Saskia Riedel, Founder of arcs audio

In this episode of fIVE, we talk with Saskia Riedel about digital mediation of art without inhibition thresholds. In 2017 Saskia founded arcs audio, which is all about building bridges. It offers interactive and participative audio guides for museums and exhibitions to make ‘art more accessible’ to all people. Saskia is driven by her passion to ‘open up’ the seemingly exclusive art scene, by exploring and experiencing what is displayed ‘through the voices of others’. These stories, and narratives of ‘everyday people’, what they perceive and see when looking at a specific piece of art, are recorded and put together in an interactive audio guide format. A start-up at the intersection of culture, digitalization, humanity and art.
