Startup Villa networking pool party
Fed up with online networking events that don't work? And boring office gatherings? Our startup lives and works in a villa with an incredible view and a pool. Now that's a perfect place for meetups.
About the event
We welcome anyone who supports female entrepreneurship. men are most welcome as well, as long as you strongly believe in diversity in tech. if you need to be convinced, find another place to hang out. the party is not a place to debate whether diversity is good. it is the place to connect, unwind and build your network. it is free but donations are welcome.
The party is interesting for:
current entrepreneurs
you can meet future business partners and investors and brainstorm about common topics.
future entrepreneurs
meet all the participants of the startup ecosystem and see for yourself if entrepreneurship sounds cool.
expand your pool of potential mentees and chat with other mentors.
best way to discover talent and get a feel for the founders. how men treat their wives at events gives you plenty of info.
what's going to happen
on entering the villa you will be asked to take a photo
with a poster "we need more women in tech/startups". these photos are to be used for the awareness campaign. by coming to the party you consent to this.
food, drinks and talks

pool and a photoshoot
