Women are increasingly becoming the global driving force for economic growth and innovation, and WiSTEM is celebrating the women leading the way for others in spite of all the odds. With over 100 confirmed speakers and attendees from more than 15 countries, WISTEM is probably one of the biggest Women-in-STEM conferences in the world, creating an opportunity for networking and building partnerships for future ventures.
This year’s event will be taking place from October 25-26 at the Crowne Plaza, Sheikh Zayed Road - Dubai, UAE.
The two-day conference will comprise industry-led tracks, providing several opportunities for industry experts and leaders to discuss pertinent issues within each space. The extensive range of topics is sure to cater to the needs of the diverse, international audience. Another highlight of the tracks will be fireside chats, short capsule interviews with women who will be offering insights across domains like online business models, the future of cloud, VC funding and more.
The tracks which will be discussed are:
Sharing economy and IoT
Cloud and tech
Investing (incubation and acceleration)
The event invites women from all fields in science, tech, engineering and math to pitch their startup ideas in front of a number of leading global venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and private investors, with a possible seed funding opportunity.
In addition to startup pitches, the event will include a number of discussion panels from industry experts who will be sharing their insights and experiences from the ecosystem, as well as a career fair that enables attendees to meet potential candidates for positions they are hiring for.
