Women Founders Conference

Women Founders Conference is a full day event being curated by Startup Kano Team with an audience of about 800+ women in business and startups in one place, with focus on women in business and entrepreneurs, to share their stories and practical advice.
Our aim is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea focused and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder to provoke conversation that matter.
Each years conference theme challenges us to think about how collaboration is key in building businesses, and how it has helped in building their business and critical social issues.
