SHINE Women in Tech Gala (INVITATION ONLY)
Join in the celebration of amazing women founders and other women in tech in Vietnam!
Are women entrepreneurs a pathway for Vietnam to groom 10 technology unicorns by 2030?
With a strong belief in the potential of female entrepreneurship, Ascend Vietnam Ventures (AVV), in partnership with the Australian government’s Investing in Women, launched the SHINE Women Founder Initiatives. Since its commencement in early 2021, SHINE has provided 600+ hours of training, mentorship, and networking opportunities to nearly 50 women-led businesses, forming a true community and support network for women business leaders in tech.
As SHINE officially wraps up this month, we are pleased to host the SHINE Women in Tech Gala to spotlight Vietnam’s amazing women founders and other women leaders in tech, share stories and learnings from our SHINE journey, and call for further women empowerment initiatives to unlock Vietnam’s full potential to become a startup powerhouse in Asia.
Join us to honor and champion enterprising women in tech in Vietnam.
The event is by invitation only. Dress code: business-casual attire.
