Description

Around the world, businesses are recognising the favourable impact that gender diversity has on innovation and valuation. However, despite the clear benefits, the tech industry is still suffering from a low representation of women across the board: developers, executives, entrepreneurs and investors. In this session, opinion leaders representing driving forces in the innovation eco-system, will address questions such as: What best practices can startups adopt in order to attract and maintain a diverse team? Why are women-led startups struggling to raise funds and how can this be changed? How will gender balance impact the startup landscape 4 years from now?
