If you’re the leader (or, are in a key position) of a woman-led startup, and you want to participate in a 10-week deep-dive into leadership, problem solving, and technological innovation, then I think this may be of interest to you.
The Demo Day for Google’s woman-focused Startups Accelerator is a virtual showcase where participants will hear from a number of startups.
These startups will talk about how they’ve used technology to adapt to a given aspect of their individual industry.
One of these startups is actually based in my own hometown of Montreal, QC Canada: Tengiva.
Annie Cyr, a former textile sourcing expert, faced a lot of frustration, and she wanted to do something about it.
That led to Tengiva, which is said to be the first digital platform that enables real-time supply chain data to the textile industry. It reduces the procurement process to just a few clicks.
That sounds impressive, and definitely would be an amalgamation of a lot of brain power and leading technologies.
There are other startups across a range of industries, varying from accessibility (wheelchairs) to recruitment (I think I saw 2 such companies), to energy-neutral wastewater treatment.
You’ll hear about how each of these innovative startups are able to do things that weren’t done before.
From what I’ve seen, it seems that the event scheduled for December 2 is, as appropriately tiled, a Demo Day. I read that there’s a 10-week program that follows.
Of course, in the 10-week program, one can expect to make great advancements in their knowledge, maturity, and readiness.
If you’re the leader of a startup, and you want to learn about how other startups have used technology successfully, then the 10-week program may be for you.
Google has helped many women entrepreneurs. Is it your turn now?
