Womentum 2019 – Diana Kinnert, German politician, entrepreneur, publisher, and activist

“Politics is not disruptive,” says Diana Kinnert, German politician, entrepreneur, publisher, and activist.

“Politics is not ready for the future and, especially because we are the diverse people who are trying to shape the future, not ready for us,” she added during her keynote speech as our guest speaker during the Womentum Showcase in Berlin.

We were honored to have Diana speak to the startups just before they pitched during the showcase held at the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Berlin culminating the two-week bootcamp.

Drawing a close link between entrepreneurship and politics, she inspired the startups by saying that they are much more important than politicians given their commitment to finding culturally rooted and sustainable solutions to problems that exist in society, in a much faster and more agile way than traditional politics.
