Event description
An Entrepreneurship Makeathon Empowering the Next Generation of Female Leaders

About this Event

Are you a creative thinker, maker, or aspiring leader in high school?

Join Generation She at our second annual two-day entrepreneurship makeathon at Lyft HQ in San Francisco! Learn more at www.generationshe.co

During the two day event, students will actively engage in discussions with female entrepreneurs, participate in design thinking and ideation exercises, attend product development and marketing workshops, get actionable guidance, and so much more! Some of our keynote speakers include the founder of Health Aid Kombucha with more to be announced soon. In the past we have had the female founders of Sugarfina, BOOMCHICKAPOP, and Knock Knock Stuff speak to our attendees.

The workshops will be hosted by industry professionals from companies like General Assembly, Lyft, and so many more!

Sessions will be held from 8am to 5pm on both Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26. Attendees are required to attend both days.

Through these sessions, students will develop a business idea in preparation for an (optional) pitch competition on Day 2 of the makeathon. Winners will receive grand prizes (to be announced soon)!

Tickets are limited and sold on a first-come, first-serve basis:

Ticket prices cover breakfast and lunch, drinks and snacks, access to our interactive workshops/sessions taught by professionals, mentorship from female founders, entrepreneurship workbook, and a swag bag valued at $80+.

For more information about the makeathon please reach out to us at contact@generationshe.co or text us at 508-469-9409.

FAQs:

Do I have to come to the makeathon with an idea prepared?

Nope! The brainstorming sessions with industry leaders on the first day were made to help you with the ideation process. If this process is intimidating, don’t fret! Come to the makeathon with a list of your interests (books, movies, works of art, anything!) and from here you’ll be able to figure out what you’re truly passionate about!

Is this an overnight event?

This is not an overnight event! Sessions end on 5pm each day and you must be picked up by a legal parent or guardian.

If I don’t attend Saturday, can I still come on Sunday?

Due to the nature of the prep work throughout our ideation activities, we will not allow girls to attend only one day of the event. Each of our work sessions build upon the one before it, and thus we require attendance at all events on both days.

Do I need to have previous entrepreneurship experience?

Absolutely not! Throughout the two days we work with you to develop the necessary and technical skills you need to not only come up with an idea but to make that idea a reality.

Do I have to be in high-school?

Exceptions for students not in high school will be made. Please reach out to us at contact@generationshe.co.

What do I need to bring to the event?

Please bring your laptop, charger, notebook, and a warm jacket!

I don’t have a ride to the event, what do I do?

Please reach out to students at your high school and try to organize a carpool. You can also take public transportation. Lyft HQ is just a couple minute walk from the San Francisco Caltrain Station! If you are 18+ you can take a Lyft ride to the event.

Is food provided?

Yes! Lunch AND breakfast are provided for the attendees. There will also be a networking hour on Saturday night with drinks and snacks!

Are scholarships available?

Yes! Generation She is sponsoring a limited number of scholarships covering the full price of the ticket. More details to come.

How do I become a Generation She Ambassador and what are the benefits?

To be announced.

What’s the dress code?

Smart casual! Think, “jeans and a nice top.”
