Enter the Techpreneur Awards!

Techpreneurs awardStop hiding your internet and tech visions under a bushel. A new awards aimed at women setting up internet or tech-related businesses or those who have already started one is giving them some much-needed recognition.

Last week I met with the founder of the The UWC (University Women’s Club) Techpreneur Awards for Women, Fiona Scott Lazareff. Fiona is passionate about promoting women in this arena.

The search is on for women who are involved in tech-related start-ups, either in an established business or at the conceptual stage. Apart from the obvious kudos and PR, the award winners will receive some great prizes, including:
– Membership of The University Women’s Club
– Mentoring sessions with leading entrepreneurs / coaches
– A guaranteed pitching slot at an Angel Academe event
– A case of Virginie T champagne
