inbusiness: TechTonic network for female entrepreneurs
The July 2016 Business Diary section of The Oxford Times inbusiness (see page 54) featured the recently launched TechTonic networking group for aspirational women who want to deliver. inbusiness July 2016 tweet card Co-founder Nicola McConville of Penningtons Manches said:
Two things planted the seed in my head. The first was hearing about the funding and tech landscape in Cambridge where a group of female business angels support female entrepreneurs. I asked a few people here if they could name a female business investor, other than Oxford Instruments Audrey Wood and people struggled to come up with a name. The second was realising there were few all-women panels or female keynote speakers at tech events.
Other co-founders include Sue Staunton of James Cowper and Executive Chair of Venturefest, Lynn Shepherd who noted:
More and more women are either part of the tech sector or are wanting to join it. We are still in the minority - you only have to sit around a meeting table and count the number of ladies present, but if we can strengthen that voice and encourage more to just do it, I will be quite happy
TechTonic was launched at Venturefest in June 2016, look out for more announcements in our newsletter.
