This is the first ever Lady Pitch Night competition in Brazil. This is a business competition focused on early stage startups. All startups must be founded or co-founded by at least one woman. The Girls in Tech team there has been amazed at the level of interest—and the quality of submissions. Thus, the jury decided to go with ten finalists versus the five originally planned. Winners will be chosen this evening.
Beyond the pitch competition, the evening will include talks from iconic leaders in technology and entrepreneurship. Prizes include a trip to San Francisco, a year of co-working and other benefits such as tickets to international events.
