Women in Tech
New this year at AccelerateAB is the Women in Tech track. This half-day session will include keynote speakers and panel discussions featuring prominent leaders and professionals in the Women in Tech scene.
Championing women in technology is one of the most important causes in our industry today. As of 2017, only 5% of Canadian technology companies have a solo female founder, and only 13% of tech companies have a female co-founder.
In Alberta, the proportion of female tech founders in 2018 is almost double the national average at 30%. This percentage has increased 50% in the last two years. While we have made great strides, it is important that we continue to support and grow women in tech.
AccelerateAB’s Women in Tech track will focus on accelerating, supporting, and learning from Alberta’s outstanding female entrepreneurs to help continue this positive trajectory.
