Dear Harvardians,


The Harvard Club of Switzerland would like to invite you to our Founder’s Talk, in which we invite founders of growth stage ventures to share their perspective in respective sectors, how they identified disruptive or niche opportunities, and their journey and learnings from 0 to 1.

This time, we are honored to have Patrizia Laeri and Nadine Jürgensen, co-founders, CEO, and COO of elleXX to share with us their visions and journeys to change gender inequality by going straight to the core - enabling more women to be financially independent and strong. elleXX is a resource and platform for women's finances. Money governs the world. Women still don't hold the reins, though. The fintech venture elleXX desires to alter that - Combined, women are capable of anything, even altering the financial industry. 

This breakfast event, kindly hosted by elleXX in their Seefeld office in Zurich, will give us a first-hand experience of starting a fintech venture in Switzerland with a unique ambition and vision to improve gender equality by filling the product and solution gaps in the financial service sector. With Patrizia Laeri and Nadine Jürgensen, two renowned journalists and TV anchors with track records in global political and economic affairs and top voices in gender equality and diversity, we would definitely gain great insights into their thinking journey and be inspired by their vision and actions.
