Anita Borg Institute India announced the sixth edition of the Women Entrepreneur Quest (WEQ) 2016. The contest is designed for technology startups founded by women.

This year the contest awards recipients has grown from six to 10 entrepreneurs in technology, who can win an all-expenses-paid experiential learning visit to Silicon Valley, US. During the Silicon Valley visit the WEQ Top 10 will receive exposure, capacity building and networking opportunities.

“We are experiencing an increasing number of women entrepreneurs in technology in India building smart and innovative solutions for the real world. It is important to develop this talent so that they go on to build large, sustainable and successful business.

At ABI we really do hope to see some of the next generation tech giants in India being founded by a woman. We are delighted with the continued support we are receiving from DST, Government of India and IUSSTF in our endeavor to scale the growth of women-founded technology startups,” said Geetha Kannan, Managing Director, ABI India.

“After two successful visitation programmes to the Silicon Valley, we are looking forward to raising the bar through WEQ 2016 with a larger group. The WEQ visitation programme provides the Indian women entrepreneurs extensive mentoring and networking opportunities with Silicon Valley resources to help overcome challenges and scale up their ventures,” said Dr Smriti Trikha, Senior Science Manager at IUSSTF.

The registrations are open and will close on October 16. For information on the contest and to apply visit:http://ghcindia.anitaborg.org/women-entrepreneur-quest-2016/.
