GIRLS ENTREPRENEURSHIP SUMMIT 2019 will gather 200 girls and young women from Dar es salaam and other selected regions in Tanzania who will participate in a 2-days intensive non-residential business support program and competition. Girls Entrepreneurship Summit is an annual event organized by Apps and Girls, Apps and Girls is a Tanzanian an award-winning social enterprise that empowers girls to create the world they want to live in using technology.
Apps and Girls’ overarching objective is to invest in young women as potential tech entrepreneurs, tech creators, tech role models, and leaders, in Tanzania and across Sub-Saharan Africa. In order to achieve this goal, Apps and Girls is implementing an innovative cyclical process of advanced coding training, entrepreneurship training, mentorship, and incubation. Apps and Girls has partnered with selected public and private secondary/high schools and other organizations/institutions that work with girls in Tanzania to easily facilitate the recruitment of participants and smooth yet sustainable implementation of the project. Prior to the summit, selected girls in 26 different schools attended an intensive 2-days workshop of coding and entrepreneurship training, and afterwards they spent two months learning and working to solve community problems and develop tech-driven businesses with their assigned mentors.
GES 2019 will be the final stage for these students to pitch their great ideas and prototypes. During the summit, participants will participate in various training sessions, round table discussions, exhibitions, pitching sessions, networking, get matched to experts and mentors and more. We also have 15 seats of "Wakongwe Exhibition" for interested mentees at Apps and Girls who have participated in the previous summits or any of our programs and want to exhibit their products and services. Additionally, we will also have another pitching competition from the participants of the previous summits (Wakongwe Pitching) who are competing for $1000 seed money. We are looking for a vibrant crowd of students, young people, parents, inventors, mentors, explorer , tech enthusiasts and many more , If that's you then you too can register for an "Attendee/Student" ticket.
