Thank you for your interest in applying to be a Spark speaker for our 4th edition! This year the conference will be hosted at the University of Amsterdam, Nieuwe Achtergracht 170.

Our theme this year is The Next Step. We hope to put together a program that helps female entrepreneurs tackle shared challenges, particularly when it comes to process, mindset, and scaling up. Such challenges should be considered when applying to speak at the conference.

Applications are open Oct.2 - Nov.15.

Program: The tentative program will have 2 Open Plenaries (duration: 30 min, audience size 100-120) for which the speakers will be invited & 6 Breakout sessions for which there is an application process (duration: 1 hr, audience size 15-35). If you are chosen to speak at Spark and would like to stay for the entire conference program we will have a special reduced speaker rate available. This will be a cost-covering ticket to help us keep Spark sustainable. Keep in mind that speaking at Spark gives your business visibility which that in itself holds value.

Please fill out these next questions and we'll be in touch with the results within a month after the deadline, once the Spark speaker panel has met to review all applications.

Please keep in mind the challenges female entrepreneurs are facing when filling out your application. Themes/examples include; scaling up, mindset, process, community skill-share, challenges of hiring staff/HR management/staffing struggles, the intrepreneur/teaming up with the corporate world, taking chances, stories of success and failure, skill-set building.
