As Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) began its six-day program that aims to boost female presence in entrepreneurial ventures, the October 31 ‘Women Startup Summit 2020’ gained key focus as a culminating event providing tips for success in businesses.
The month-end summit will feature speeches by corporate captains, marking the highlight of the KSUM initiative that is part of the state government’s dynamic measures to promote women-led industry ventures.
Registrations for the October 31 event, which is part of KSUM-led programs such as She Loves Tech, Why Hack - Hackathon, WE Start Bootcamp, EDP and Investor Café, can be made at https://startupmission.in/womensummit/.
The summit, which features a startup competition named ‘She Loves Tech India 2020’, is being co-organized by Startup India, TiE Kerala and Indian Women Network of Confederation of Indian Industry.
KSUM, while pointing out that Kerala currently had below-par women participation in the startup ecosystem, said the phenomenon was still weaker in the space of technology.
On Monday (October 26), the program began with a Hackathon Orientation. Titled ‘InnovateHer’, it was led by KSUM, ICFOSS & TCS. Subsequently, Enterprise Network co-founder Robert Lobo led a session on ‘Decoding Investor Mindset’. This was followed by ‘She Loves Tech India 2020’ a pitch workshop for startups.
Going ahead, the program will announce the winners of She Loves Tech India 2020, Best Inclusive Incubator, Best Inclusive Startup and Best inclusive IEDC. It will showcase the National Grand Challenge featuring startups with women founders/products positively impacting the lives of women shortlisted from the ‘She Loves Tech India 2020’.
On Tuesday, a Bootcamp for women freelancers began even as Deloitte Director (Valuations) Kapil Bellubi carried out a session ‘Valuation For Startups’. On Wednesday, there will be an Investor Café, which is a pre-registered one-to-one meet between investors and startups.
Thursday’s highlight will be a session on ‘Intellectual Property for Women Startups’ by Vivek Singh, Head (IP Filing & Prosecution Practice) of Sagacious IP. The next day will see a panel discussion on ‘Women & Technology’.
KSUM is the state government’s nodal agency for entrepreneurship development and incubation activities.
