About this event

Most people would think that the Covid-19 crisis brings the need for businesses to practice conservation and consolidation - but what about capitalising on opportunity? The current business climate is actually brimming with new and exciting pockets of opportunities - you just need to know how to spot them, and what to do with them.

In this special panel event with Women in Tech and Antler, we’ll uncover why now is a prime time to launch your own startup. We’ll explore:

  • What the current startup ecosystem looks like and the barriers that prevent entrepreneurship.
  • The impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on the community, and what startups should be focusing on right now
  • The steps and opportunities female entrepreneurs can and should be taking to propel their careers
  • What building and launching a business in this time actually looks like

Join us for an exciting and insightful discussion!
