Satellite Office supports founding women

19. July 2022


Berlin, August 14, 2017: Satellite Office Business & Coworking Center is relaunching its startup prize this summer under the name “WSC – Women Startup Challenge 2017”. We are looking for women who have recently started or want to start a business with a promising idea. The basis for the application is a business plan, which is evaluated by a jury of several members. The tender documents can be requested online via the homepage. Three prizes will be donated: A company headquarters with address, workplaces in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Düsseldorf or Zurich. Likewise, the meeting rooms in the locations and the coworking desks can be used. Three office packages that can be business and image boosters, especially in the first year. For the duration of the sponsorship year, the three award winners will become members of the Satellite Office Business Club and gain access to important impulse events. The chance to present the business idea to investors should also be particularly exciting.

Anita Gödiker, owner and CEO of Satellite Office, started her own business twenty years ago and ran into many closed doors. There was no support from banks, business and politics. Especially not for women. At that time, Gödiker established the “Existenzgründerinnenpreis für Berlin”. She wanted to draw attention to this grievance. Today, twenty years later, her company is the German market leader in the premium segment of business & coworking centers. And it is re-advertising the competition. Today with non-cash prizes worth over EUR 40,000. A dream for many female founders. Anita Gödiker: “I wish women would dare to do something! To pursue ideas, to formulate them, to turn a passion into a business.” She herself is the best example that it can really work. “Today, I donate the prize no longer out of frustration but out of desire. I look forward to many exciting applications” says the entrepreneur.
