We’re thrilled to announce that Girls in Tech Brazil will be hosting its first ever Lady Pitch Night in May! Co-founders and entrepreneurs may apply for a chance to win a flight to San Francisco, and much more.

What is Lady Pitch Night?

Lady Pitch Night, produced by Girls in Tech, is a must-attend event for entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, designers, and anyone who wants to know about the latest trends in technology and innovation. Plus, attendees will get to know the most innovative women entrepreneurs in the Brazilian tech industry. Estelle Rinaudo, Girls in Tech Brazil’s Managing Director, says she expect about 100 submissions.

If you believe in your startup’s potential, simply fill out the registration form. Your startup must have been founded six to 36 months ago, and have at least one female founder, with an office or workplace in Brazil. But hurry, spots are limited.

A win for female entrepreneurship in Brazil

The Brazil startup scene has never seen a more exciting time, according to Rinaudo. And, Lady Pitch Night Brazil marks the first Lady Pitch Night event in all of South America.

“Brazil is at a turning point when it comes to women, entrepreneurship and technology,” said Rinaudo. “Last year, for the first time a majority of new businesses were created by women. And for the first time, some tech accelerators received more applications from teams who had a women co-founder than from male-only teams. Lady Pitch Night Brazil is happening at a moment where it can have a big impact in the Brazilian tech scene to support this new dynamic.”
