We are ambitious women who believe that together we are more than just the sum of ourselves as individuals. We connect extraordinary women and enable each other to create great things, based on our strengths, talents and personalities. Personalities that couldn’t be more different, and that together form our unique collective: IVY. We inspire and are inspired. We strive for trusting relationships – for empathy, authenticity, respect and honesty.

IVY. Inspired. Valued. You.

Inspired.

We want to build a platform where women can always network,
share and empower each other, not like in any other stiff business club,
but in a relaxed and familiar atmosphere.
We share real insights and inspire each other with both small and
big things we do in our everyday lives.

Valued.

We communicate at eye level and appreciate each other –
because trust is the heart of our collective.
We share real success and failure stories and treat them confidentially –
just as you would with a friend.

You.

Everything is centered around us.
Creating space for each Ivy is important to us.
Because there is no WE without YOU. YOU are the Collective.

Collaboration over Competition.

Two of our essential characteristics are hidden in the IVY name. As a plant,
ivy can take over entire buildings, roots deep, but always growing upwards
towards the sun. We too have a clear standing, know who we are and never
tire of growing and developing. If we would make a parallel to prestigious
Ivy League colleges in the United States, it is a seal of quality. As a
boutique collective, we always focus on quality rather than
quantity.

Instead of 3 angels for Charlie – 3 reasons for IVY.

Head.

IVY boosts your business. We offer access to resources such as business partners, people of interest, mentors, coaches and more. Last but not least, the IVY Female Collective serves as a career springboard for each of us.

Heart.

We connect women who share the same mindset and ambitions, and experience shows this leads to life-long friendships. As a bonus, you can always look forward to our great after-work event highlights in exclusive, unique locations.

Identity.

The stage is yours. At our IVY o’Clock events you can introduce yourself, share your story or present a project that is close to your heart. There is no WE without YOU!

IVYs

We see the strengths of every IVY.

Success is no accident.
