Celebrating the UK’s best female tech entrepreneurs


The search is on to find the UK tech sector’s best female entrepreneurs.

Historically tech has been a male-dominated industry, which is why BusinessCloud has launched a quest to find the 101 Female Founders of Tech.

The list, which will appear in the final 2017 edition of BusinessCloud, will celebrate the incredible women who have taken an idea that uses tech in some way and turned it into a first-rate business.

It will build on the incredible reception of BusinessCloud’s inaugural 100 Female Role Models in Tech list in 2016, which received over 3 million impressions on Twitter and won widespread praise.

The new list will celebrate the female leading lights and the unsung heroes of the tech world.

If you’re a woman who started a tech business, or know someone who is, we want to hear from you!

BusinessCloud editor Chris Maguire said: “Computer programmer Ada Lovelace is just one of the most famous examples of a trailblazing woman in the industry who wasn’t recognised when she was alive.

“Today the world is full of examples of women who are at the forefront of tech and we want to showcase their work so they inspire the next generation.

“Our100 Female Role Models in Tech list in 2016 was a massive success but we didn’t just want to repeat what we did last year so we want to shine a light on the women who have started or co-founded a tech business.”
