AWE SESSIONS

The AWE program is a series of workshops designed to support women entrepreneurs. Tailored to specific needs and challenges, this program promotes business success through inclusive, educational sessions and focused engagement that accelerates results for women- founded and co-founded companies.

AWE sessions are led by seasoned women in business, each sharing their perspectives, experiences, and knowledge. Gender-related issues within tech sectors are examined and presenters discuss how they navigated their way through gendered industries and how they turned challenges into opportunities.

Our sessions are delivered virtually to clients and community members.
