Women In Emerging Tech

Our Vision and Mission

Welcome to Women in Emerging Tech, your gateway to a thriving community dedicated to connecting and empowering women in the ever-evolving world of technology. 

At Women in Emerging Tech, we’re on a mission to break barriers, foster connections, and inspire the next generation of women tech leaders.

In a rapidly changing technological landscape, staying ahead of the curve is crucial. Our company was founded on the belief that every woman deserves equal access to the latest trends, insights, and opportunities in the tech industry. 

We understand that the emerging tech space can be intimidating. Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the language of emerging tech? At times, we do too, but we’re here to bridge that gap and provide you with the tools, connections and language that you need to succeed.

We are committed to providing access to all women, including supporting them in finding work opportunities, networks for their startups, mentors and de-bunking imposter syndrome.
