Conferences & Exhibition
In 2018, we held the first Technology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship(TIE) Conference, a two-day conference in Herat, Afghanistan, where young female entrepreneurs could have the chance to showcase their business ideas and products to local leaders, potential partners, and members of their communities. These girls have been students of Digital Citizen Fund’s education programs. They have learned digital and financial literacy in a nationally and culturally conservative environment that largely stigmatizes and denies such education to female citizens.
In 2019 we held the Second Technology, Innovation, Art and Entrepreneurship (TIAE) Conference for a one-day conference and exhibition in Herat, Afghanistan.
The TIAE Conference's goal was to encourage and inspire young Afghan women to develop their entrepreneurial ideas through the positive exposure of their budding businesses to leading professionals. The women gained experience by pitching business ideas and learning how to improve or further flesh out their concepts. In a nation where women already face technological and educational obstacles to enter the global economy, this will be an incredible opportunity to expand their networks and get ahead.
