What is the Shesnnovation Academy?

Shesnnovation Academy is a unique program focusing on enterprising female students, PhD students and graduates from technical and science specialities (especially those, but not exclusively), where the passion for technology meets the business know-how.

It is a series of meetings, workshops, and seminars, meetings with mentors and experts, the effect of which will be creation of women-led STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) start-ups.

Do you know that according to the 2018 report by Startup Poland only 26% of the Polish start-ups have a woman among the founders?

We want to change that, because we believe that together we can achieve more.
