“Techpreneur” is a catchy new term describing the growing popularity of entrepreneurs in the technology sector. Luckily, more women are getting involved in this space, and we believe they deserve to be recognised.
“Have you ever dreamt of starting a business, but never quite dared? Most women are totally capable of succeeding and are particularly suited to tech-related startups, which can offer enormous flexibility in terms of where and when you work. Unfortunately, the word ‘tech’ often conjures up images of alien stereotypes: usually male!”
