Tech is power.
It can help you reach your dreams and unleash your creativity.
It can give your voice the potential to solve diverse problems
in our city, our nation, and the world.
Sadly, less than 10 % of the industry is led by women.
We exist to accelerate the number of powerful women…like you.
Are you a tech founder, funder, leader, student, or supporter of women in technology?
We’re a grassroots organization that is advancing the ecosystem around women in tech and leadership… like you.
We create events that drive change.
We’re a women-led, men-supported grassroots organization that uses events to showcase, advance and connect female tech leaders. Our Founder STORIES and EVENTS highlight the diversity of those who are challenging traditional industries with innovative tech-based solutions. We do this to advance today’s leaders while inspiring and educating future leaders of every industry.
Never in history has there been a better opportunity for women to build and scale solutions that can change — everything.
Stories of Visionary Women.
We tell stories and lessons to advance women in the tech ecosystem, from aspiring founders to leading funders.
We use the stories, video and networking events to build deep connections, drive profitability, and infuse diversity into tech.
Our vision is a tech industry that drives everyone’s potential to reach their dreams, advance business, and change the world.
“I have to say that you changed my life. At one of your Women Tech Founders’ events, I actually found a path to reach my dream. If you did not hold that event, I would not have been who I am today.”
