If you have always been curious and interested in learning more about launching your own startup, you’ll want to attend Singapore Women Startup Weekend from November 23-25 held at the Hub, Singapore.
Singapore Women Startup Weekend aims to provide the opportunity for all aspiring women entrepreneurs in the local community to get inspired by an idea and explore starting their own venture. You will also have the chance to network with industry movers and shakers in the community, and connect to other entrepreneurially minded individuals, while becoming more engaged within our local entrepreneurial ecosystem. It will inspire and connect aspiring women entrepreneurs with local tech and startup thought leaders to a full weekend of activities, as well as time for networking and mentoring.
To this end, Singapore Women Startup Weekend will feature an excellent panel line-up of mentors and judges from various industries, and the action begins on Friday with open mic pitches, with attendees pitching their best ideas and inspiring others to join their team. Over the next two days, teams will get to validate their ideas, and eventually set out to build a minimal viable product. Towards the last stretch of the event, teams will get to demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from the panel on Sunday evening.
Singapore Women Startup Weekend springs from Startup Weekend, which are 54-hour events where tech, creative and business people of all kind come together to share ideas and launch startups. The event sets out to strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystems that are responsible for job creation and economic growth.
Kauffman Foundation VP of Innovation and Networks Lesa Mitchell once delivered a great talk, in which she advocates engaging women in entrepreneurship, where “This isn’t about girls supporting girls,” she said. “This is about… all of us trying to reach out to 50% of the highly educated population… and figuring out how to engage them in entrepreneurship and economic growth.”
Ladies are invited to come and participate in this exciting momentum.
