Event description

Description

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

(Numerous scholarships for free tickets are available!!**)

Join She Leads at our two-day entrepreneurship makeathon hosted by Snapchat! History shows that successful leaders and entrepreneurs are those who start their journey early in their youth. Learn more at www.sheleads.io.

During these two days, 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 Sugarfina, Knock Knock Stuff, and BOOMCHICKAPOP. The workshops will be hosted by industry professionals from companies like Snapchat, General Assembly, verynice design studio, and so many more! Sessions will be held from 9am to 5pm on both Saturday, March 9th and Sunday, March 10th. Attendees are required to attend both days.

Through these sessions, students will develop a business idea in preparation for the pitch competition on Day 2 of the makeathon.

Pitch Competition Winners

Winners of the pitch competition will be paired with a successful female founder to mentor and guide their ideas into reality. The pairs will work together over the following five months through our mentorship program at www.sheleads.io (free of cost).

At the end of the five months, mentors will set up a pitch meeting between their student and an angel investor for a seamless transition to launch.

Grand Prize

Participants with stand-out technology solutions will have the chance to launch their product directly with Kinect Consulting, a leading emerging technologies firm…and if it takes off, have a percentage of proceeds applied toward your college tuition!

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

No, through ideation workshops and brainstorming with industry leaders, we will help you come up with one on the first day. Still don’t feel like you’re ready? Not to worry. Kinect is hosting a pre-conference webinar on February 22 at 5pm PST to help you cultivate high impact ideas that could end up in development. All conference registrants are encouraged to attend.
