Encouraging more women to participate in Startup Weekend Kathmandu

Startup Weekend is for everyone. To involve more women participants at Startup Weekend Kathmandu, I believe many things can be done.

First, we can visit local colleges along with a former woman participant and share her story with the audience. This allows the audience to connect to the participant and Startup Weekend. Second, putting testimonials from past participants in Startup Weekend’s website/social media pages especially from women participants will encourage other women to participate. Third, reasonable discounts in registration for Startup Weekend to women participants can provide more incentive for them to participate.

We want to see more women and girls interested in technology. There is plenty of room for them to make an impact in this world.
