Championing women founders, leaders and change-makers in tech
accelerateHER is a global events series and network uniting the world’s most innovative tech companies with exceptional women founders, global leaders and rising stars in environments conducive to catalytic discussion and collaboration. The driving force behind the accelerateHER community is that we are women first - uniting men and women to drive change through technology.
On Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 September, accelerateHER convenes virtually in Asia to deliver content-rich virtual offerings, high impact round-table discussions, pitches and masterclasses. This event shines a light on the women building and driving the industry’s most awe-inspiring companies and brings together the progressive investors, visionary corporate executives and thought leaders shaping the future. Discussions will delve into the topics that matter right now from healthtech to fintech, leading with purpose in turbulent times and placing more capital in the hands of women founders.
- Connections are the core of our community. We connect women and men across tech and beyond to grow a network of leaders that are proactively working to achieve gender parity in tech, and therefore secure an inclusive future across all business.
- By curating thought-provoking and practical content we combine community-based learning and advocacy to bring to life the realities women are facing in the world of work and the ways in which gender inequality in tech influences society at large. We spotlight leaders with game-changing ideas that are data-driven, measurable solutions.
- Gain inspiration and guidance. Access discussions with the world’s leaders in tech and gain the insight and guidance you need to take your tech career to the next level.
