For six months, it accompanies up to ten female founders with a camera on their way to their own company. The video diaries of the founders take the audience behind the scenes and give them an insight into what is involved in successful founding. In the first season, the business ideas included vegan cheese, a solution for wastewater management and a fashion rental app. Feedback was provided by successful founders such as Diana zur Löwen, Svenja Lassen and Bettine Schmitz. The show is a project of Gründerplattform, which is supported by KfW and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection.
