The digital revolution causes disruption in many fields, except in gender-equality.
Today, worldwide, women are still under-represented and under-funded in the Tech ecosystem: Women represent only 10% of co-founders, 3% of CEOs, 9% of investors, less than 30% of the digital force and get a dismal 2.7% of all venture capital.
Yet startups co-founded by women are performing 63% better than all-male founded teams.
Women in Tech, you are the best disruptive force of innovation, you are the future of growth.
Our aim at 50inTech is to build a powerful tech solution to reach gender-equality by identifying Women in Tech, sharing best practices, offering access to mentors and key partners, opening the doors of accelerators or incubators, connecting with international communities, and giving a special access to business angels and VC Funds.
We believe sisterhood is a crucial key to success and that it is to possible to give and take whether you are starting out as a founder or dealing an exit. We all learn from one another.
To learn about the deep needs of both female founders and ecosystem players, we launched in November 2018 a global campaign “Time to be 50inTech” with a survey.
For our inaugural meetup in London, we wanted to tackle a subject that is taboo among entrepreneurs as well as funders. Starting a family while creating a startup may seem difficult, but we are convinced that it can be achieved. We are very proud to launch 50inTech's 1st meetup in London together with Balderton Capital.
