Abstract / Description: 

 

The Japanese character “Hito” (人) represents two individuals leaning on each other for support.  This abstract concept is reflective of the spirit defined by Women’s Startup Lab, a startup accelerator in Silicon Valley designed specifically for women.

In our next session, Ms. Ari Horie, Founder and CEO of Women’s Startup Lab, will provide her experiences on entrepreneurship, the history of this accelerator program launched in 2013 and how it is enabling both men and women across global communities to optimize their skills and way of thinking in order to innovate and collectively develop best business practices.

Please join us on Thursday, November 6th for our sixth session of the quarter on “New Trends in Startup Company Acceleration: Toward the Rise of the Global Startup.”

Immediately following the session, we’ll have a short-networking reception from 5:30 – 6:15PM.
