The Research Triangle Park

Triangle Startup Weekend | Women

HQ Raleigh Oct 10 6:30 pm - Oct 12 8:30 pm

Did you know that only 7% of startup executives are female? And did you know that most Startup Weekends attract only 20% female attendance? We’re seeking to change that with the first-ever Triangle Startup Weekend: Women! 

TSW: Women is a 54-hour experience where participants (female and male!) pitch ideas, collaborate with others who have complementary skill sets, get coaching and produce startups that help even the playing field in entrepreneurship. 
We’ve seen the events work in other cities, and it’s time to bring one here. 

Entrepreneurship is all about innovation and the more diversity we can bring to the table the more we will be able to drive innovation in the Triangle.  Through collaboration, entrepreneurial thinking, and community building, we can make the startup ecosystem more accessible to everyone. Come be apart of the drive towards more collaboration and leveling the playing field.
