Supernovas | Startup Stairway

We identify startups and scaleups from high-tech or deep-tech fields and match them with young women from STEAM careers. We want to expose them to a startup experience early in their careers, in order to inspire them and foster their entrepreneurial spirit.

The Startup Stairway activity is designed to foster female activity as entrepreneurs by exposing them to startup experience early in their careers. The project aims to identify startups and scaleups from high-tech or deep-tech fields and matching them with young women from STEAM careers. Furthermore, when appropriate, it will co-fund the placement.

How we do it?

We are are offering 60 internships, for young women from science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) careers to support their first (or second) job in a start-up. Sixty participants (a minimum of 50 % from RIS countries or regions) will be selected to undertake an internship, for at least 3 months in high-tech & deep tech start-ups. This will focus in increasing their presence in start-ups deemed as deep tech where women’s presence is lower.

We offer:

  • To young women from STEAM careers the professional experience to work at start-ups or scale-ups deemed as high & deep-tech.
  • To start-ups / scale-ups a unique environment to select future employees to bring a wider scope to their teams, women with top resumés and academic performance who have a STEAM background.
