The gender imbalance in entrepreneurship and tech is a real problem. Countless hours of debate have done little more than create confusion and a pointless battle. We choose not to add to the noise. Instead, we’ve created WomenTechShip. Where we want to refocus on the woman, as she is. By withdrawing ourselves from that noisy informational space, with numerous disputable opinions and ideas, what sense will it make to talk about what needs to be changed when we will be already changing it?
We are creating a closed knit ecosystem dedicated to empowering and closing the gender gap in the tech industry. WomenTechShip is a initiative set up NASSCOM 10,000 Startups in collaboration with all ecosystem partners Sheroes, AnitaBorg, Wetech, Google Womentechmakers, Microsoft Womenintech, TheRodinhoods, WE, still adding and many of our women founders! who helps us support and grow entrepreneurial women in the tech space. We join together to help each other learn, grow, and excel.
WomenTechShip is a community of women dedicated to helping aspiring and established female tech innovators. We believe that the more women get involved with tech design, development and leadership, the more successful and diverse our companies and products will be in the future.
Our objective here is to drive a real, positive change – begins by asking new questions instead of trying to find reasons or biased answers. “How can we empower every single woman in tech to do something big? How can we help Women solve more problems and change the world?” We don’t have the answers. 10,000 Startups WomenTechShip is a journey to find them with you. A journey that will take us beyond just these questions into new, important areas of exploration. We believe women can and will find that elusive path to independence and greatness. We want to act as catalyst, bringing together successful women from around the globe and providing valuable philosophical and practical tools to learn, grow, and do – together.
To build this community, we will be doing Tweet Chats with Women Entrepreneurs every Friday, starting 7th August (3-5pm). Join us here – We’ll be chatting with Swati Bhargava, Co-founder, CashKaro
