Lessons from Leading Women Tech Entrepreneurs

The November meeting of Women in Telecoms & Technology (WiTT) will celebrate women entrepreneurs in tech with a panel discussion among leading women who have founded, grown, and in some cases sold businesses in the tech sector. Our women tech entrepreneurs event has been timed to take place in the week before Global Entrepreneurship Week, which runs from 13-19 November this year. 

Audrey Mandela, WiTT Chair and co-founder of Multimap.com, will chair the panel. Our speakers will be announced soon.

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 of raising capital;
  • views on scaling up businesses started in the UK; and
  •  advice for other women entrepreneurs.

WiTT would like to thank Michelmores LLP for hosting this event.
