Women’s Startup Lab (WSLab), a Silicon Valley-based accelerator for women-led startups, is holding its second annual event WiSE24 in San Francisco on June 18.  
 
The event, which is taking place over 24 hours, is to live stream startup pitches from women-led ventures in 10 places, including Seoul, Taipei, Tokyo, New York and Ukraine.  
 
The theme of the event — "Rise Locally, Empower Globally" — calls on technology and innovation leaders, both domestic and international, to look beyond their borders for new markets, talent and investment opportunities.
 
Three Korean companies are participating in the event, where investors will attend to look for potential startups. Dawoo Tech, food company Zikooin and 3J, that sells test kits for venereal infections, are the participants.  
 
“Diversity drives innovation, and to make that happen, women's unique abilities must be respected, and we need to lift up each other in a strong community,” said Kate Kim from WSLab. “I believe it is my job through WiSE24 to make all women realize that they are like swans having wings to fly. It’s especially an amazing opportunity for female entrepreneurs in South Korea to join and learn from top startup influencers and advisors at the event.’
