Description

“Pitch Night: Women in Tech” is an evening that focuses on the sharing of ideas, experiences, and insights on women in technology.


Four Malaysians working at the intersection of women and technology are given 5 minutes to present a pitch on their work or its challenges. Seven accomplished women leaders in STEM from TechWomen United States will serve as guest mentors, providing feedback and ideas to our pitchers. At the end of each pitch, audience members are given time to share their thoughts.
