Welcome to InnoHUB!
InnoHUB is the first immersive learning & accelerating program on the topic of Open Innovation & Agile Thinking for women & gender nonconforming innovators from Amsterdam as well as from all other cities and towns in the Netherlands and the Benelux region.
InnoHUB Launch event
June 8, 2021 // in VR
Our new InnoHUB program, organized in partnership with Evenness and powered by We Rise, Techleap, Fundright, and Fruss, focuses on creating the Womentum (the momentum for women and gender nonconforming individuals in the fields of Innovation).
With new female role models in business and entrepreneurs slowly rising across the globe, Women in AI would like to bridge the gender gap in the ecosystem and accelerate the change. This comes with a goal to upskill women and gender nonconforming innovators from the Netherlands & Benelux markets and provide them with the right Data- & AI-related practical knowledge to ensure that they gain competitiveness in the job market and become more visible and included in the global history of innovation.
What is InnoHUB?
This novel learning & accelerating program organized in a web-based VR environment is tactically designed for women and gender nonconforming individuals of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds to:
gain the required skills in the fields of Open Innovation, AI & Data to increase their competitive edge in the job market,
learn first hand from the Innovation experts and inspiring role models, as well as
prepare to innovate (and by doing so, advance their agile thinking or even launch their own startup)
Format: June 22 - July 15, 2 days a week, 3 hours per day (Workshop: 4:30pm-6:30pm CET; Networking: 6:30pm-7:30pm CET)
