Female Founder Forum
We, the SUP46 FemTech team in cooperation with Wellstreet, will be running a side event at Sweden Demo Day celebrating some of Sweden's most inspiring women who have established themselves in our thriving tech scene.
Through our survey launched before our last SUP46 #femtechse event, you shared with us what you thought were the main barriers to women in tech, and we've listened.
47% of you thought that the general perception that women cannot "do" tech, as well as the lack of high profile female role models in the tech industry, are significant barriers to seeing more women enter the industry.
71% thought that making women in tech more visible would significantly help affect change.
We will have an all-women panel with a mix of tech founders, developers and investors, and will invite them to share their experiences and journeys throughout their education and careers, and find out what it takes to make it in an industry overwhelmingly dominated by men.
You will, of course, have the opportunity to ask questions, get some advice and address your challenges with the members of our brilliant panel. You can learn more about them by reading their short bios below in the 'Speakers' section.
Katja Bergman, co-founder and partner at Brightly Ventures
Helene Stafferöd Westerlund, CTO at Instantor
Annie Thorell, CTO and co-founder of It's Re:Leased
Olga Stern, founder of Genews & author of 'Ettor och nollors hemliga liv'
The event will be moderated by the CEO and founder of Trice Imaging, Johanna Wollert Melin.
Do not forget that one needs to have a ticket for Sweden Demo Day in order to be able to attend any side event including this one!
