SheStarts – Lessons from Silicon Valley ~ Sydney

August 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Silicon Valley. It’s universally known as the global heart of tech and innovation. With a massive startup community, access to funding and tech talent, the Bay Area seems to be the perfect place for any entrepreneur aspiring to build and scale a global business. Right?

But what does it really take for a startup to make it in the US? How does it feel to be a small fish in a big pond? To be inside the tech giants like Google and Facebook, to pitch your idea to seasoned investors and to hear from experienced founders who have blazed the trail before you?

If you want to know the answers to these questions, join us for a Q&A session with the SheStarts founders, who have recently come back from a massive delegation in Silicon Valley and are ready to share their insights and learnings with you! Whether you’re a current founder, aspiring to become one, or just interested in startups, tech and innovation, this is your chance to learn more about the Silicon Valley startup scene – the good, the bad and the ugly.

After the presentation, there will be a networking session with drinks, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet the founders, hear their stories, learn more about the SheStarts program and the founders’ plans going forward.
