Like many other male dominated industries, the field of technology presents both challenges and opportunities for women today. InnoTech is hosting a half to full day event that will provide better understanding of how women can be successful in this field.
You don’t need to be a geek. Did you know women-led private technology companies are more capital-efficient, achieve 35 percent higher return on investment, and, when venture-backed, bring in 12 percent higher revenue than male-owned tech companies. That’s according to new research presented at a recent conference in San Francisco organized by Women 2.0, a media company devoted to women founders in the tech industry. It indicates female entrepreneurs, who have traditionally lagged behind their male counterparts, are catching up, at least by some measures.
During the Women in Tech Summit at Innotech happening May 2 at the Oregon Convention Center an impressive cast of women executive speakers will discuss important issues such as What is the best career path for a woman in technology? What do women need to know before they enter this field? How do they best prepare? Don’t miss this opportunity to network and learn.
