Global Startup Weekend Women | Melbourne, Australia, Friday, 13. September 2019

A weekend for people of action!! 
Startup Weekend Melbourne is back! Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where developers, designers and business development folks come together to pitch an idea, validate, and launch a business, all in one weekend. Test your ideas, meet potential co-founders, build your community in Melbourne and launch your next startup!

Our Theme: Women | Diversity + Inclusion! 
We believe entrepreneurship is the single greatest force in making the world a better place. We are encouraging entrepreneurs from all corners of Melbourne (and the world!) to come out, participate, and create ideas and opportunities that drive real-world social change.
We believe in an inclusive definition of “women”; we welcome trans, genderqueer women and non-binary people who are femme-identifying. 
Inspiring More Women Leaders in Founding Startup Teams 
DID YOU KNOW?! 
- Women account for 50% of the world’s working-age population - but are largely misrepresented. - Women hold just 5.2% of CEO positions at S&P 500 Companies.- Closing the wage gap for women would add $28 trillion to global GDP.- McKinsey's research shows that gender-diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform their peers and ethnically-diverse companies are 35% more likely to do the same.
We want to continue efforts in cultivating a wholly inclusive community. A key component of that vision is empowering women to pursue their dreams and build tools that change the world. We believe that by creating the right environments, programs, and initiatives, women in tech (alongside their larger community) are better positioned to drive transformational change in their community and beyond.


This September, our Startup Weekend Global community will be hosting the most number of startup weekend women in the world, ever! and we want you to be a big part of it!


Join us for our chapter in Melbourne this September 13-15, 2019 for an incredible weekend of inspiration, learning, networking and startups!
