Latinitas Startup Chica

STARTUP CHICA CONFERENCE

Saturday, October 14, 2017

9am to 5pm

Cost: $15 / Lunch provided

Where: Capital Factory (701 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)

REGISTER HERE

Girls of all backgrounds between the ages of 9 and 18 will learn how to come up with innovative ideas to help solve social issues and turn them into products and apps that they will pitch to judges.

Latinitas is honored to have a special keynote speaker that the girls can really relate to: 13-year-old entrepreneur Mikaila Ulmer, Founder and CEO of Me & the Bees Lemonade, which can be found at Whole Foods Market and other natural food stores.

The full-day conference will take place on the first floor of Austin’s hub for innovation, Capital Factory (701 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701), which has played host to former President Barack Obama and Apple CEO Tim Cook. The girls will spend the day learning how to identify and solve problems, define their market, price and market their products, and present their ideas. The event will close with the girls pitching their ideas to a panel of Hispanic entrepreneurs. Parents are invited to attend a workshop in the morning on how to support their child’s entrepreneurial spirit.

The $15 cost of attendance includes lunch and materials, and will be waived for all Club Latinitas members. Financial assistance is also available for those who may require it. The event is sponsored by eBay, Bumble, HomeAway, Wells Fargo, the LevelUp Institute, Donn’s BBQ, and the City of Austin’s Economic Development Department Cultural Arts Division. Anyone interested in sponsorships can reach out to vicky@latinitasmagazine.org.

Latinitas is still looking for helpers who can assist with event logistics and professionals who can serve as mentors for the girls. Interested volunteers can sign up here.
