Announcing Galileo’s Jupiter Program:  a program for all women from Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) backgrounds who aspire to lead early-stage tech startups as founders, builders or operators.

STEM women have a legacy of pioneering discoveries, from 🧐 Marie Curie, Ada Lovelace, and Katherine Johnson shaping our world through programming milestones and scientific breakthroughs.

The untapped potential of women in STEM as leaders in tech startups is undeniable.

The Jupiter program aims to address the gender gap in startup leadership and cultivate more role models for future STEM Women, by:

  • Providing an inclusive and collaborative STEM community
  • Offering targeted workshops on technology, product and startup development so women are as well equiped as male start-up leaders
  • Increasing the number of STEM-qualified women to lead early-stage tech startups
