Extrait du règlement


HEC Paris tag line has been for years now : « apprendre à oser » / learn to dare.

To explore new territories, try different initiatives, launch new ventures, take risks, and learn from them all, the good and the bad ones. And start all over again.

Last year in July 2018, the HEC Paris Office in Germany started a unique initiative, a full-day conference around women, economy and entrepreneurship, with a French-German lens. It was certainly daring but 200+ attendants spent a full day learning, creating connections and starting projects together. Bound by this belief that, together, things may change in the gender equality field.

For the 2nd edition of this conference, Olga Hein (Director HEC Paris Office in Germany) along with Morgane Chouzenoux (Associate HEC Paris Office in Germany) met numerous experts and speakers, among which Imène Maharzi (HEC 2000, seasoned investor and mentor, and founder of OwnYourCash). The magic of serendipitous encounters then played its part. Imène Maharzi suggested the creation of an award to complement the full-day conference.


What kind of award?

  •      OwnYourCash is an educational platform to massively train women (and men !) to become Business Angels. By opening a conversation on the taboo around money, biases, gender-lens investing and impact investing, OwnYourCash will contribute to a smoother access to capital for projects co-founded by women… hence an award to shed light upon companies founded/co-founded by women.
  •       The HEC Paris Office in Germany is an active promoter and facilitator of French-German cooperation… hence an award dedicated to companies already active in both French and German markets, or willing to deploy themselves in one market or the other.
  •       It is proven that women-led projects lack visibility, social capital, and qualified contacts to grow their business … hence an award designed not as a simple appraisal, but as a booster for growth and expansion, with sponsors and partners deploying business mentoring, pro-bono support and tons of goodness !
  •       As an HEC Alumna, experienced VC and entrepreneur Imène Maharzi, with the support of HEC Paris Office in Germany will leverage on this 2nd edition of the french German Women Forum to actively promote values of entrepreneurship, audacity and mutual learning. And they know first-hand that women do not need to be told to dare. Because they already do… hence an award which celebrates boldness and entrepreneurial spirit in all women… Yes, She Dares!



This award is designed to promote and actively support the growth of a company co-founded by a woman, with French German operations or ambitions.

The winner will receive:

  •    Round trip tickets to Münich, Germany, and 1-day accommodation to attend the HEC French-German Women Forum
  •    Access to OwnYourCash events and community for 12 months
  •    Mentoring from a selection of executives from our partners and sponsors [To be detailed and adapted to the winner’s needs]
  •    Invitation to a selection of ATOS start-up events
  •    Mentoring on communication and media strategy by Accroche’com (2 sessions)

The Organizers are working to enrich this list until July 5th, 2019.
