SCV WIE participation at WIE ILC 2018
As always, this year too we decided to offer a scholarship to students to attend the WIE-ILC conference. We received many impressive applications, and after careful consideration, 10 students were awarded full scholarship. Three of them shared with us their experiences at the IEEE WIE ILC 2018 conference.
Support the IEEE ILC 2018 Startup Winner – SmartGulz
As you know, less than 3 percent of VC funding is awarded to women. To level the playing field, SmartGurlz, winner of the IEEE ILC 2018 Start-up Pitch, is running a crowd equity campaign to raise Seed funding for the company. We would love to have WIE members as a micro investors in SmartGurlz – investments start as low as $1K. We have already raised $360,000 through hundreds of investors. SmartGurlz will also match each raise with a donation of SmartGurlz coding robots class pack to a school in need or choice of the investor.
Check out the Seed Invest page. We need and count on your support!
