Beschreibung

Whether you are already working in tech or looking to launch your career, you will learn about the experiences of female innovators and entrepreneurs. The varied life and career stories of these role models constitute an inspirational book for women in STEM and tech entrepreneurship.

This book features 20 in-depth, candid interviews. Interviewees include CEOs, founders, pioneers, and inventors from a wide spectrum of tech organizations ranging from software to hardware across sectors as varied as accounting, genomics, mobile technology, e-commerce, business intelligence, online education, and video games. Danielle Newnham, a mobile startup and e-commerce entrepreneur and online community organizer, presents the insights, instructive anecdotes, strategies, and advice shared by women, including the obstacles they encountered and how they overcame them.

The primary audience for Female Innovators at Work is women and girls already in or looking to get into tech. The secondary audience is men in tech who wish to learn more about their female peers and the obstacles they face and to learn how they can contribute to leveling the field of occupational opportunity and strengthening tech teams and companies through merit and diversity. 

Readers of these interviews will learn:
•The right stuff to succeed as a woman in tech
•The opportunities that exist for women in tech
•The obstacles women face in tech and how to overcome them
•How to build a supportive network and find mentorship 
•How to raise capital for your startup and from whom

Klappentext

This book describes the experiences and successes of female innovators and entrepreneurs in the still largely male-dominated tech-world in twenty candid interviews. It highlights the varied life and career stories that lead these women to the top positions in the technology industry that they are in now.

Interviewees include CEOs, founders, and inventors from a wide spectrum of tech organizations across sectors as varied as mobile technology, e-commerce, online education, and video games. Interviewer Danielle Newnham, a mobile startup and e-commerce entrepreneur herself as well as an online community organizer, presents the insights, instructive anecdotes, and advice shared with her in the interviews, including stories about raising capital for one's start-up, and about the obstacles these women encountered and how they overcame them.

This timely book will be of great interest to anyone working in tech or looking to get into the industry, and more in general: to everyone wanting to learn how they can contribute to leveling the field of occupational opportunity and to strengthening teams and companies through merit and diversity.
