In the framework of its mission of supporting and empowering African Diaspora in their endeavors for sustainable development of Africa, ADNE is sponsoring the Digital African Woman Annual Conference to take place on the 21st  and 22nd of September in Brussels.

The first day of the conference will take place at Eggsplore in Brussels. It will consist in a high level workshop in which trainers such as Brian Rashid, from Silicon Valley, Rossana Kurrer, MIT Master Trainer in Belgium, and Netia Mccray, from Mbadika (USA) will train startups all across Europe on how to pitch their projects, and how to become unicorns in this complex world of entrepreneurship. This is therefore an event especially targetted to startups and startup accelerators, but everybody is welcome. The event will take place at Eggsplore, and there are still tickets available.

The second day, we will host the event at the European Parliament. A very intensive session in which the best startups selected from the 21st September workshop will take our pitch challenge in front of a very high level judge consisting of Alexandra Dreschner- UCB Director of CSR, Jezabel Martinez-PHD -Head of  strategic communications, Christelle Pandazyla- Regional Director of Give1 and Brian Rashid- Sillicon Valley startup coach and Motivational Speaker. The winners at this pitch challenge will be candidates for the StartUp Europe Awards, an initiative promoted by the European Commission and implemented by StartUp Europe and Finnova, to be held next December 2016.

 

If you are a #tech #startup getting into this unicorns and dragons world of entrepreneurship, you for sure should attend this event, as it will provide you with networking, training, advice to pitch, and the unique opportunity to be candidate for the European phase of the StartUp Europe Awards.
