What’s Going To Happen At Today’s Founder Institute Event- Startup Founder 101: Women In Technology

Do you have an idea for a startup or an early-stage company and looking for someone to co-start the journey or seeking some sort of direction to head start your startup? Are you a woman and interested in building a technology company or someone who wants to contribute to increase the number of women entrepreneurs in Bangladesh?

You have come to right place. Founder Institute Bangladesh-local chapter of the world’s largest entrepreneur training and startup launch program-is organizing an event today to promote and support women entrepreneurship and inspire more women to start technology startups. As Sajid Rahman, Director, Founder Institute Bangladesh puts it: “technology is the most democratizing platform in human history. It is agnostic to gender, race, geography and culture. We in Founder Institute believe that Silicon Valley is a mindset not a piece of land in one corner of the earth. We therefore believe that if we manage opportunity, we can develop the same quality of companies and founders in Bangladesh as in SV. Female founders are no exception. We want to equip the female founders with the same tools and discipline that are available to someone in US or Singapore so that we can have our next Sheryl Sandberg or Elizabeth Homes from amongst you. This is not a utopian dream but a very methodical approach to solve the pipeline issue of female founders in our eco system.”

When: August 25, 2015 | Time: 6:30 Pm

Where: NewsCred Dhaka, 58/E, Kamal Ataturk Avenue, 10th Floor, Dhaka, Banani, 1212
