Beyond the glass ceiling

June 24, 2018

Fighting the battle on another front is Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre (MaGIC), which is organising its first Pre-Accelerator Bootcamp: Female Founders Edition to push for �women-led startup.The bootcamp which starts next month has so far attracted about 150 participants.Its chief executive officer Ashran Ghazi says entrepreneurship helps women gain economic freedom, and for women graduating from universities it was also another avenue for a career beyond the usual corporate route."In my journey, I can vouch that having women founders helps to create the right balance - not just gender balance but differing �opinions on how to go to market," he says."Also, it's invaluable when �creating, say, a user interface that appeals to a broader audience."
