As far as I remember I’ve always heard first about men’s achievements in the Tech Industry. Yes, it’s true there are more men than women out there, but still! I believe in the policy of “Small Steps” so here is my contribution to pay tribute to these women who also deserve to be recognized.
On average, startups founded by women are 30% less likely than those founded by men to raise funds. Perhaps the solution would be to continually remind people that many successful startups were founded by women, and thus break the glass ceiling?
So today, I’m sharing with you the names of women entrepreneurs who really inspire me. I have listed only 13 of them, but I will share more names with you in another article. Actually, there are so many!
Eva Sadoun founded Lita.co, a more environmentally friendly way to finance startups. She is also co-president of TechForGood France, a community of entrepreneurs committed to the ecological transition.
Pauline Laigneau is the first female entrepreneur I discovered. And actually, she made me discover other great female entrepreneurs through her podcast, Le Gratin. Pauline is known for being the CEO of Gemmyo, a startup which uberizes the luxury jewellery.
Following her master’s degree in media and digital, Marion Carré wishes to put artificial intelligence at the service of art. She is at the initiative of AskMona, a conversational solution that assists visitors of various cultural places.
