Entreprenerd: The problem with women in tech


What’s stopping women from launching their own tech start-ups?

Women are hugely underrepresented in the tech industry, and even more so in the start-up sphere.

In today’s episode of Entreprenerd, Robyn speaks to Alice Bentinck of Entrepreneur First who deals with this on a personal level, as a female co-founder of a tech business – but also, by the very nature of the business, is involved with trying to get more women into technology.

Find out:

  • What holds women back from launching tech start-ups
  • Why women don’t need to change to be accepted in tech
  • How to get hold of thousands of pounds of funding and advice to create your own tech business
