IT’S EQUAL & GLOBAL
In Dream Big, we are striving for great things and a better future. We focus on equal opportunities, for example, by having a gender-equal jury panel. It is the level of innovation, entrepreneurship, business potential and growth opportunity that determines who wins – not the gender!
Women entrepreneurs generally find it harder to get start-up capital and the opportunity to realise their business ideas; due to prejudices that women would be less capable than men when it comes to business growth and taking risks. This is obviously not true: women and men are equally qualified at running companies. If anyone has doubts, this is supported by several research reports. The Luleå University of Technology has compared over 20 economic indicators in companies with female and male leadership – their research shows no difference.
What you win
In Dream Big Nexer Innovation Race 2021, you are competing to realise your awesome business idea by allocating capital and business support. We know that all business ideas have different needs. The capital provides the opportunity to invest in what’s required to achieve the goal and realise your dream.
Need help to contact the right people to test your idea or as an opportunity for partnerships? Through Nexer’s extensive network, we can connect you with the right companies and people.
Sometimes a leap into the unknown can be scary. We want you to succeed, and we can help reduce the risks. As a large company, we can provide safety so you can focus on the idea. This may include an employment contract or an inspiring workplace.
