  • Get a front row seat

    As a business leader, you know that business processes are being digitized in new and exciting ways. And you know that entrepreneurial skills help: fail fast, test new ideas, be agile and collaborative. At FORE, we call it a "Digital Mindset". This seven-day Innovation Journey immerses you in such a mindset and stimulates.

    "In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders."—Sheryl Sandberg

    Whilst the expected skill set of a digital leader is gender neutral we, as female founders, have experienced over the years that an intimate environment and a different learning approach leads to faster development of these skills.

    For this reason, Matchlabn has developed an exclusive one-week Innovation Journey, created by and for women.
  • This Innovation Journey:

    • is most suitable for female senior corporate leaders who are or aspire to be a role model within their respective companies, thus inspiring the next generation.
    • has been designed for women who are open to meeting new people and are willing to share experiences.
    • is an exclusive event so that we can create an intimate, non-competitive environment of collaboration across various industries.
    • will be a small group of maximum 12 women so that even the smallest startup can still host us and so we can engage in conversations instead of non-interactive lectures.
