Amidst the powerful movement of women taking the lead in businesses, especially in the realms of cybersecurity and technology, Exabytes’ 2022 AWEWE campaign made a significant impact. Exabytes had supported a total of 380 women entrepreneurs in Malaysia and Singapore to enhance their entrepreneurial skills and build an online presence to kickstart their online businesses. 


Building upon the impressive success of the inaugural campaign in 2021, Exabytes is returning even stronger for its third year! AWEWE 2023 is geared towards assisting 1,000 women entrepreneurs with a specially curated Digital Toolkit. Beyond this, an exciting physical conference is on the horizon, dedicated to discussions around the theme of “The Rise of Women-Led Businesses – Driving Cybersecurity and Tech Transformation.” This conference will explore topics such as the growing presence of women in the tech industry, inspirational female role models, the digital gender divide, and more.


All are invited to be a part of this enriching experience, where you can uncover how these comprehensive programs can enhance your entrepreneurial skills and propel your business to unprecedented achievements.
