Our GDG and our Women Techmakers Ambassador are hosting Startup Weekend Women NYC this weekend.
Come and join us in a 54-hour long weekend, where you'll have a chance to get your ideas off the ground in collaboration with like-minded women and allies!
Techstars Global Startup Weekend Women's Edition is your chance to kickstart a new company, learn, network and disrupt your industry of choice. We're focusing on creating an all-inclusive environment and are aimed primarily at women, however, this event is open to all.
Techstars Global Startup Weekend is where passionate people can come together to get things done; to learn, network, bridge the gap between trades, expose potential and see actual results. New York Women edition is designed to engage more entrepreneurs and provide them with the necessary resources for long-term success. The weekend will be focused on empowering more women within our community to lend their voices to innovation. It will be one of over 50 Startup Weekends happening around the globe, and the winning team will qualify to attend our global (in-person) demo day with other #globalswwomen winning teams.
Why Women edition?
Our aim is to involve more women in the startup world. We have seen the barriers faced by women in tech and we would like to cultivate a wholly inclusive community. Women still don't fill enough important roles in tech. Women hold under a quarter (24%) of senior roles across the world and 5.2% of CEO positions at S&P 500 Companies. Closing the wage gap for women would add $28 trillion to global GDP. As tech lovers, women and entrepreneurs, it is our responsibility to grow female representation, in NYC and around the world!
How it works
Beginning with Friday night, women pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas followed by a 54-hour of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders providing another opportunity for critical feedback before a final winning team is chosen.
