HerSaga was founded to empower and inspire more women to startup and HerPitch is a major step towards that. Hong Kong based Jaarvis Accelerator offers a four-month residential accelerator program where they provide mentorship, office space and access to funding. Together through HerPitch, it intend to provide a platform for women entrepreneurs to nurture their ideas and help them realize their full potential and thus increase the participation of women in startups.
"HerPitch is being held in conjunction with HerSaga and is designed to give female entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase their idea and pitch it to a jury of successful women entrepreneurs. They'll receive immediate feedback and advice on their startup from the jury members, and the best ideas will be given a chance to join the Jaarvis Accelerator program.
Jaarvis Accelerator is pleased to be able to provide support for female entrepreneurs as part of our program. We already have several female co-founders leading startups in our portfolio, and we will continue to provide opportunities for good ideas to be turned into reality through the program," said Brett Stevens, Vice President, Jaarvis Accelerator.
“A big kudos to Brett and the whole Jaarvis team for supporting our mission of empowering women entrepreneurs and changemakers,” HerSaga mentioned on its website.
