It’s hard to believe that Women 2.0 is now more than 7 years old. In just a few short years, the concept has evolved from a ‘women in tech’ conference to a networking lifeline for female entrepreneurs from all over the world. The company has grown to feature a blog network, regular conferences, pitch events, monthly meet-ups, investor hangouts, and weekly live broadcasts. It’s the reason why so many female entrepreneurs feel empowered to pursue their dreams.

Half the battle of a start-up is simply getting started, but once you have an idea and a team, there comes another hurdle: finding the right product-market fit.
The quest to product-market fit or ‘PMF’ is often filled with false positives, failed features, and trying to figure out the fastest possible way to generate revenue.

Women have been dominating the headlines for the last weeks. From debates about women ‘leaning in’ in the workplace, to new research that shows that women are leaving their mark on the tech scene – women’s issues are having their time in the light.
So why all the fuss about the ladies? Because we are the next billion.
The next billion of consumers, the next billion of markets (the emerging markets), and the next billion of products. In short, women are poised to transform economies worldwide for generations to come.
Today, I want to talk to you about the innovators. The women changing the face of the tech startup industry right before our eyes. And I have one question to ask you…Are you ready for us?
