Opportunities To Transform The BC Tech Ecosystem | Why Women Matter

Fri, May 28, 3:00 PM (PDT)

About this event

Tech is booming in British Columbia with 6 unicorns announced in the past few weeks. Women entrepreneurs often lead the charge on many fronts but are often left out of the headlines. Why do women matter in tech and where are the opportunities? If you are a woman, how do you participate, and how to get started?  As a male, how can you best support women entrepreneurs.  Learn from our humble & seasoned veteran panel of investors, educators, and innovators. With just 17% of women working in tech in this province according to CBRE, there definitely are opportunities to disrupt the status quo.
