Active in the Austrian startup community for several years, Lisa got to know the ecosystem from different angles. Starting her startup career in a project similar to Pokemon Go, she soon realized that she’s passionate about supporting and developing young companies. After spending several years in the research field she became the Managing Director of the Austrian Angel Investors Association, where she e.g. established an investment initiative in CEE as part of her role at the European Business Angel Network (EBAN). In 2016 she co-founded Female Founders, an organization that aims to change economy and society by fostering entrepreneurial leadership. Female Founders currently runs different programs, among them a startup accelerator for female-led ventures from all over Europe and a leadership accelerator for entrepreneurial employees. In addition, she serves on several advisory boards of public and private organizations and lectures at different universities across Austria. In spring 2020 she became part of the startup advisory board of the Austrian Minister for Economy and Digitalization.
