Redooc nell’Official 2014 Female Founders in Tech – Girls in Tech ItalyRedooc Blog
C’è anche Redooc!
It’s here.. the Official 2014 Female Founders in Tech list by Girls in Tech – Italy has been disclosed to the public, and we couldn’t be more excited!
This year we went a little further and we decided to also include the sector in which the startup operates and its location. Thanks to these two elements, together with the biography of our founders and their startup description, we were able to create a comprehensive list of 86 female founders (including the entrepreneurs from the 2013 List, available here).
These data also helped us summarize a profile of the typical Italian female entrepreneur: on average she is 30 years old, she is working in the digital sector and lives mostly in the Northern part of Italy, has a scientific or technical educational background and has previously worked for large companies before starting her own startup.
Scrolling through the list it is also possible to see that the talents come from all over Italy, including Sardinia (where 2 startups are from) and Sicily (that is home to 3 startups). Focusing on sectors, this year we had a great increase in startups that operate in the hardware sector, which in the 2013 version was not accounted for.
The digital sector comprises many different projects, from education to e-commerce, from fashion to food. Moreover, many of these startups have the mission of not only being profitable, but also improving the industry in which they operate.
Many of our founders have studied or worked abroad for other companies before deciding to move back to Italy and founding their company in a very challenging sector such as that of innovation and technology.
But now, no more talking. Let us introduce you to the 2014 Female Founders in Tech by Girls in Tech – Italy!
