Our Advisory Board
AS OF JULY 1ST 2020
We welcome our new advisory board members!
Finance Online Platform FinMarie taking off to a next level with prominent advisors
For some entrepreneurs the lockdown might have meant a forced break in their activities, for the team of FinMarie it meant using the momentum for getting set up even better. Today they are announcing the start of a strong and inspiring advisory board: Two prominent brand ambassadors – the former Minister for Economics and Energy Brigitte Zypries as well as the former Member of Parliament Mirco Dragowski will support the startup with their joined activities as well as their know-how.
Excerpt from the Press Release | 1st July 2020
“We are extremely happy and honoured to welcome our first two members for our advisory board. Having been able to convince the former Minister of Economics and Energy Brigitte Zypries as well as the startup mentor and former Member of Parliament Mirco Dragowski, two highly influential as well as inspiring personalities are joining forces with us as well as the mission of advancing the issue of “women and financial independence”.
Introducing the Members of the Advisory Board
“There never really was a doubt as to whether I should support FinMarie. The current development during the lockdown had made it so obvious again how big the gap of ambition vs. facts ref. financial equality of the genders in Germany still is. Serving as an advisor for FinMarie for me represents the opportunity to give this topic and possible solutions even more awareness and visibility.”
– Brigitte Zypries
“Each day I realize how small the degree of female influence within the startup and investors scene in Germany still remains. This is a massive motivation for me to help women via FinMarie to gain more economic confidence as well as influence. I am convinced, like this we can help grow the female influence in founder teams as well as investment committees.”
– Mirco Dragowski
Even more inspiration - among women
A first event in cooperation with Brigitte Zypries is intended to take place in August, others to follow in September.
“The current situation obviously means we need to be extremely careful and act responsible referring to the health and safety of participants and speakers as well. At the same time we are confident we’ll find a format that is as safe as inspirational as well.”
– Caroline Bell, COO FinMarie
Now even better equipped to help you towards more financial independence.
“Having those two experienced partners on board is highly appreciated by the whole team. We are looking forward to working together very much! We feel really empowered for the next milestones.”
– Karolina Decker, CEO FinMarie
