The Oxford Times: New group is tonic for Oxford’s tech females
An Oxford Times announcement on 9th June 2016 highlighted the upcoming launch of a new exciting network for women entrepreneurs: TechTonic.   TechTonicLogo - compressed Co-founder Nicola McConville of Oxford-based law firm Penningtons Manches said:
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.
She added:
I took soundings from women and men who are prominent and influential in Oxford’s tech scene, asking if they shared the view there was a gap? But if so, did they think we do something about it?
  TechTonic Founders 2016 TechTonic founders Nicola McConville, Sue Staunton and Lynn Shepherd Other co-founders are Lynn Shepherd, former-communications director at Oxford Instruments and executive chairman of innovation event Venturefest and Sue Staunton of Oxford accountants James Cowper Kreston, who works with tech clients. Ms Shepherd said:
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.
Join us at Venturefest 29 June and be part of this conversation. Venturefest is proud to be a supporter of this exciting new initiative, the brainchild of Nicola McConville
