Global Startup Weekend Women

A weekend of empowering women entrepreneurs around the globe!
This is a call for you to get your idea off the ground surrounded by like-minded women. Global Startup Weekend women is your chance to collaborate and get involved with a group of motivated individuals who are hell-bent on disrupting their industry of choice. The event is aimed at female participants, however, men are welcome to participate.

What is a Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekends are all about learning through the act of creating. This global grassroots movement of active and empowered community leaders and entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. Participants with varying specialities come together to share ideas, form teams and launch startups from the bottom up.

What’s different about this event?
This Startup Weekend is designed to engage more female entrepreneurs and provide them with the necessary resources for long-term success. The weekend will be a focused on empowering women within our community to lend their voice to innovation. It will be one of over 200 Women’s Startup Weekends happening around the globe, and the winners have an opportunities to be featured by Techstars Global Startup Weekend.

The innovation ecosystem has never been more exciting than it is right now.
Yet, women still don’t fill enough important roles in tech. In Asia, only 31% of management roles are held by women. As tech lovers, women and entrepreneurs, it is our responsibility to grow female representation, in Hong Kong and around the world.

While we understand it takes a community of creative thinkers to help build an idea from concept through to execution, this event will be supporting women pitches only. In doing so, we ensure women are able to hone their creative and entrepreneurial talent in a safe environment that inspires risk-taking and innovation with the help of the broader community of men and women ready to share their expertise to champion change and fuel new ideas.

How does it work?
The concept is simple: women pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas followed by a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekend culminates with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders providing another opportunity for critical feedback before a final winning team is chosen.

Why should I participate?
Whether entrepreneurs find co-founders, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside yout usual 9-to-5 job, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups.

Don’t wait another minute, buy your ticket today!
