Lessons from Leading Women Tech Entrepreneurs

The November meeting of Women in Telecoms & Technology (WiTT) celebrates women entrepreneurs in tech with a panel discussion among leading women who have founded, grown, sold, and promoted businesses in the tech sector. Our women entrepreneurs event is timed to take place immediately before Global Entrepreneurship Week, which runs from 16-22 November this year.

Audrey Mandela, WiTT Chair and co-founder of Multimap.com, will chair the panel. Our speakers will include:

  • Alina Lapusneanu, CEO and Co-founder, Fiskl; and
  • Amy Williams, Founder and CEO, Good-Loop.
  • Other speakers will be announced closer to the date.

Our panel will discuss their views and experiences, including:
•          panelists’ own challenges in starting and growing (and in some cases selling) their businesses;
•          best and worst decisions made while building their businesses;
•          whether panelists believe there are differences between male and female entrepreneurs, the types of businesses they start, their management styles, and their experiences raising capital;
•          views on scaling up businesses started in the UK; and
•          advice for other women entrepreneurs.
