Women in Technology Summit June 9-11, 2019  •  DoubleTree by Hilton  •  San Jose, CA

Improving Paths for Entrepreneurial Women in Technology

Join us for an evening networking event at Hera Hub's new Sorrento Valley location! Good panel discussion, networking and fundraiser for GirlTECH San Diego.

Meet Felena Hanson, the innovative and recognized entrepreneur/founder of Hera Hub. Be inspired by her story and learn how you can create your vision and implement it successfully.

Felena Hanson, founder of Hera Hub, will lead an open dialog with start-up tech entrepreneur Kim Folsom and developer Sarah Lewis. We'll talk about new definitions of entrepreneurship and what it will take to support the next generation of Women in Technology who want to scale big ideas. We'll ask the community... what's missing in current accelerator models that will help minority groups launch the next million dollar idea... funding, access to experts, strategies, staffing, etc...?
*************************
We are also hosting a silent auction that is a fundraiser for the scholarship fund of GirlTECH San Diego, a program whose mission is to encourage young women to learn and apply computational thinking and coding skills. www.girltechsandiego.org.
