InnovationWomen Kickstarter Aims to Empower Female Entrepreneurs
Look around the room at most conferences, seminars, trade shows and panels and things are bound to look a little lopsided gender-wise. And as a result, the discussions are disappointingly one-dimensional. Where are all the women? The fact is that there are plenty of noteworthy female entrepreneurs with valuable knowledge to offer at these events - they simply aren’t getting the exposure they deserve. That’s the issue that inspired a new Kickstarter, Innovation Women. This project, which is spearheaded by PR pro and Mass Innovation Nights founder Bobbie Carlton, seeks to give talented female tech professionals and entrepreneurs some more visibility. The idea is to make it easier for women to share their expertise, while also making it easier for event managers to find and secure quality female speakers.
