A Brief History
Women 2.0 was founded in April 2006 with the vision of making an impact on gender equality in the tech world. With 30% of tech workers being women, 10% female founders, 10% female investors, 24% women sourced in the news, something had to change.
We became passionate about catalyzing this change. We saw how important it was to have more women in technology as leaders, founders, investors and technical talent. As our passion project, we – the founders, hosted networking events in our own apartments, that were open to men and women (complete strangers!).
After years of operating Women 2.0 as a “side project” and being pulled by the momentum of the expanding community, we have grown Women 2.0 into the leading media brand for the next generation of technology leaders. Everyday our work is inspired by the fact that we get to be the change we want to see in the world.
In August of 2016, we changed hands for our next phase of growth. Under our new leadership, we’re excited to continue to create impactful content, experiences, products and partnerships that build a more vibrant and diverse technology ecosystem.
