Accelerator for Women in Entrepreneurship
AWE Summit 2019
November 14, 2019
The Accelerator for Women in Entrepreneurship program (AWE) began as a question at the organizational level: "why aren't there as many women starting technology-based businesses as men?"
Innovation Factory (iF) developed AWE to consist of workshops and networking opportunities. The program reflects the current Canadian statistics on women in entrepreneurship, and addresses gender-related issues, challenges and opportunities for iF clients and women-led and / or founded companies.
The AWE Summit 2019 provided a full-day of programming for women and allies, featuring talks on gender diversity and inclusion in entrepreneurship, negotiation tactics, leadership, scaling up and funding for women.
