Gfrerer co-initiated the women's council at the HypoVereinsbank (HVB). The idea behind this is for high-flyer women to mentor young female founders. Standing up on the stage next to the two ladies is Beatrix Förster, whom Steffi Czerny is the mentor of. Förster's PYCAB is developing drugs which have advantages to traditional antibodies.
"Our vision is that if you go to the hospital for surgery, you will take our drugs and be safe from super-bugs," Förster says. The HVB will run the same competition next year for keen female founders to apply to.
