Program Details:
India is home to over one billion people and is consistently showing itself to be a hub for cutting edge innovation, with a thriving space program, a rising technology sector, and a flourishing startup scene.

The Women in Startups & Social Enterprise International Study Tour aims to equip participants with the skills and experience to work in a complex environment and in partnership with inspiring entrepreneurial women from varied backgrounds.

Over the course of this program, you will learn from inspiring female innovators as you explore Bangalore’s thriving startup & social enterprise ecosystem, and put your own entrepreneurial chops to the test in an intensive 3-day hackathon competition alongside your Australian cohort.

With guest workshops, site visits and interaction with Indian organisations, this practical program will turn the lessons from seasoned entrepreneurs into practical business applications.

Unbound is running this program from 5 - 19 January 2019.
