Marian Spier
Founder of FEM-START


“Through my work with FEM-START, I am working to address the critical funding gap affecting many women-led startups. By providing access to resources, connections, and support, I am helping women entrepreneurs overcome the challenges holding them back and reach their full potential. As an advisor and board member to organizations like the Van Gogh Museum, VandenEnde Foundation, Harper’s Bazaar, and Soho House Amsterdam, I am working to bring about meaningful change within the corporate world.”

Why International Women’s Day is important for you?

“International Women’s Day is important for me because it provides a platform for recognition, connection, inspiration, advocacy, and celebration. By participating, female entrepreneurs can be part of a more significant movement towards a more equitable and supportive environment for women in business.”
