The objective of the Startup Weekend is to fundamentally disrupt the way the world is approaching new venture formation. Startup Weekend is a democratizer of entrepreneurship, making it accessible to as many people as possible-regardless of religion, race, gender, or socio-political differences.
This event aims to provide a platform for female innovators that have ideas specifically targeted to foster and support the implementation, monitoring/evaluation, and achievement of any of the 17 SDGs. The 17 SDGs are built on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, etc. The SDGs work in the spirit of collaboration to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations.
The winning team will qualify to participate in the global competition to be held in Paris, France in March 2018 on the occasion of Women’s Day.
