Female Founders deadline approaches


As nominations for BusinessCloud’s ‘101 Female Founders in Tech’ list draw to a close, the entries flooding in show an incredibly diverse range of businesses.

The list, which is set to 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.

With nominations closing soon, the entries showcase a hugely diverse range of entries, from a business that makes 3d-printed museum objects for children, to another offering IT software solutions, to one creating wearables for kids.

In an industry that’s been called out for a lack of diversity, the list will show that there are some incredible women creating tech solutions for every kind of problem.

These women are joining a long line of female problem solvers, from the first computer programmer to the inventor of correction fluid – the precursor to Tipp-Ex.

So, if you’re a woman who’s started a tech company, or know someone who is, then send in your nominations now!
