What sets the Gen She Makeathon apart?
We're here to nurture an entrepreneurial spirit within high schoolers by providing a foundation for idea exploration and implementation through workshops in real industry skills. We cultivate community throughout the year with exclusive access to mentorship for makeathon attendees and an online community for girls to meet female founders, discuss solutions, and dream big with one another. There is no better way for girls to prepare for the future (senior year of high school, college, and beyond) than to harness their intellectual curiosity and channel it into something extraordinary. Gen She encourages young people to take the leap and create their own “something.”
Do I have to come to the makeathon with an idea prepared?
Nope! The workshops with industry leaders on the first day are made to inspire and help you with the ideation process. If this process is intimidating, don’t fret! Come to the makeathon with a list of your interests (books, movies, works of art, anything!) and from here you’ll be able to figure out what you’re truly passionate about! VIP ticket holders will be able to work with their mentor 1:1 to determine and develop their idea.
Do I need to have previous entrepreneurship experience?
Absolutely not! Throughout the two days, the speaker sessions and workshops will help you develop the necessary and technical skills you need to not only come up with an idea but to make that idea a reality. VIP ticket holders will be able to take these skills they learned and ask their mentors for questions or feedback in real-time.
Do I have to be in high-school?
Nope! Feel free to enjoy/attend the event at your own pace! However, only high schoolers will be able to participate in the pitch competition at the end of the makeathon.
What do I need to bring to the event?
Please bring any device to tune into, a charger, and a stable wifi spot!
Can I work individually or do I need a team?
You definitely don't need a team! Feel free to work on any idea solo or with a group. If your team wins a prize, you will have to divide it up accordingly. Do whatever feels best for you.
How do I become a Generation She Ambassador and what are the benefits?
