It's been almost a year since Women in AI launched their first ethical leadership & business acceleration program - WaiACCELERATE.
This initiative aims to bridge the gender gap in the industry and targets female innovators looking to start a business in the fields of AI, Machine Learning and Data Science. It is organized in partnership with am-AI-zing organizations - such as VirBELA, StartupAmsterdam, Smart Health Amsterdam, Oracle for Startups, Amazon Web Services, IBM, and Inspired Minds - and supported by extraordinary mentors and speakers (knowledge partners), and many allies.
With the final Pitch Event "ACCELER-AI-TE!", organized in VR, WAI will celebrate 20+ impact and commercially-proof early-stage startups and their founders. We will acknowledge the female founders' courage to build the startup of their dreams, enable it with AI, and their commitment to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 by creating positive impact with their businesses.
Join on November 25th for an exciting Pitch Event! Is not a competition; but rather, it is a chance to shine a light on these stellar women innovators and hopefully inspire more women to grow wings to pursue their own courageous path.
