Letters to the next generation of female entrepreneurs

Dear Female Founder, September 2016
Our IXDS labs CEO, Bryony Cooper, is one of the 66 contributers to be featured in the new book 'Dear Female Founder', launched on 14th September 2016. 

Dear Female Founder is a collection of letters from successful female entrepreneurs, giving advice from their own personal experiences to the next generation of founders. The vision comes from Lu Li, CEO of Blooming Founders; a London-based platform and network for female entrepreneurs. Collectively, the women featured have raised over $1 billion in revenues, from businesses stretching from the UK to Columbia. The book has already been featured in Forbes online magazine, and is gaining 5 star reviews on Amazon.

As an advocate of gender diversity, Bryony hopes that this book will help to address the unconscious gender bias that is still present in the world of startup founders and investors. Luckily we're no stranger to female leadership here at IXDS, but it's time the rest of the world had some strong female role models in the workplace! There are stories featured by some truly inspiration women, such as Danae Ringellmann (co-founder of Indiegogo) and Anna-Katharina Alex, founder of Outfittery.

Bryony will give a reading at the Berlin book launch of Dear Female Founder on 7th October 2016. It's available to buy on Amazon, recommended to anyone who is thinking about starting their own business.
