A BIT ABOUT #GES

The Girls Entrepreneurship Summit (G.E.S) Is an initiative that conducts series of events for young girls to explore, showcase, engage and exhibit their tech-driven innovations in addressing community matters that range from gender, education, politics, leadership, entrepreneurship, environment, and many more. It is the first biggest annual event in Tanzania that brings together young girls from secondary and high schools to connect, learn, build innovations and solutions for community problems as well as compete for prizes.

The Girl Summit paves a way for young girls to create the world they want to live in through competitions whereby winning innovations are being supported and awarded prizes such as cash prizes, medals, trophies, laptops, and tablets. The summit focuses on young girls since they are active implementers of development initiatives in any community. We believe that if girls are equipped with the necessary tools, they can quickly roll out the wheel of development to the next level.

TRAINING

Selected participants create teams in their respective schools, teams got matched with mentors and spend four months of training and developing tech-driven businesses.

PROTOTYPE

Teams work with their technical and business mentors and experts in building prototypes for their tech-driven business ideas.

PITCHING

Girls engage in round table discussions with experts, female business leaders, listen to inspiring speeches and participate in the final pitch

Do you want your school to participate in the next summit?

Schools with computer infrastructure adopt the Tech-preneurship curriculum (Coding, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship + Design Thinking) and at the end of the year, they pitch or exhibit their tech-driven businesses or innovations during the Girls Summit.

Contact us regarding opening a Coding Club at your school and let teachers or our trainers conduct weekly trainings.
