Shanghai launches female entrepreneur contest
July 11, 2018
The 2018 Shanghai Female Entrepreneurship Contest has officially begun, the Shanghai Women’s Federation announced on Tuesday.
The contest will launch an evaluation and road show in September and October. Winners will enjoy favorable policies and financial support. If winners register their startups in the Yangpu District, they will have the chance to set up office in the district’s innovative Changyang Campus.
Weng Wenlei, deputy chairman of the federation, said females are stereotyped as not being good at starting businesses, but that is based in "discrimination and misunderstanding."
