WOMEN WHO TECH

Only 7% of all investor money goes to women-led startups. And that stat hasn't budged in years. Technology conferences and mainstream media coverage often ignore the contributions of women. The challenge: to break down tech barriers and build a tech world inclusive for all.

Build a movement to promote diversity in tech and startups

Rad Campaign co-founder Allyson Kapin created Women Who Tech to showcase women in tech and disrupt a culture and economy that has made it exceedingly difficult for women entrepreneurs to access capital.

Her Strategy

  • Showcase women in tech and startups ranging from Rashmi Sinha, co-founder of SlideShare to Arianna Huffington.
  • Use multiple channels - Twitter, media outlets such as Fast Company and Huffington Post, Facebook, among others - to highlight the achievements of women leaders in technology and entrepreneurship.
  • Mobilize a network of 10,000+ women in tech and startup founders.
  • Create a repository of resources focusing on women in technology and the VC world.

GETTING WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY TOGETHER WAS JUST THE BEGINNING

5 TeleSummits held, reaching 4,000+ women in tech and entrepreneurs from across the US.

$500,000+ raised.

$400,000 funding 88 women-led startups

FUNDING WOMEN-LED STARTUPS
