Whether you're a VC searching for new investment opportunities in cutting-edge technology or a young woman who's considering entering the STEM fields, here is your invitation to help shape the future.
Introducing Nisa Amoils, an accomplished blockchain investor who will talk about her book
WTF Is Happening: Women Tech Founders on the Rise
In her book Nisa profiles a dozen female founders whose remarkable work will make a profound difference in the way we live tomorrow. This eye-opening volume provides a new appreciation of the extraordinary accomplishments being made in disruptive technology by female entrepreneurs who are building a new world.
Nisa will talk about these female pioneers making remarkable strides across a wide range of emerging tech fields--from robotics to virtual reality to drone technology & autonomous flight & how they are receiving only a small fraction of the available funding, an inequity that harms both innovator & investor alike.
Along with Nisa there will also be 2 of the featured tech founders both from our own Women in Blockchain community, Tongtong Gong andCristina Dolan to briefly talk about their work & inspire others to join them on their path of impacting the future.
