DSLauncHER: Encouraging Women Empowerment in the Technology Industry in Indonesia
The technology industry is one of the growing fields in Indonesia. However, unfortunately, there is still a gender imbalance in this industry. Based on data from the Ministry of Communication and Informatics, only around 23% of the total workforce in the information technology sector are women. Therefore, it is important for us to encourage more women to participate and get equal opportunities in this field.
As an entity that holds fast to future technological innovation, DS/X Ventures and DailySocial.id initiated an intensive 4-week startup incubation program for female founders in Indonesia called DSLauncHER. DSLauncHER aims to provide support to women who want to start startups in the technology sector by providing access to mentorship, connections, and funding opportunities. At DSLauncHER, founders can also learn valuable knowledge such as how to validate problems, generate ideas, to prepare for business launches as well as tips and tricks to increase business scale.
Through the DSLauncHER program, DS/X Ventures and DailySocial.id hope to open pintu for more women to enter the technology industry and promote gender equality in this field. The program also aims to build a diverse and inclusive community, where women can support and strengthen one another.
DSLauncHER is open to female founders who have innovative ideas in the field of technology. Participants who are successfully selected will get the opportunity to take part in a series of workshops, mentoring, and presentations with calibers in the Indonesian technology industry. Not only that, in the final series, the top selected startups will have the opportunity to take part in the Demo Day event exclusively. Selected startups will pitch in front of VCs, angel investors, as well as partners in the ecosystem with opportunities to raise funding.
