Women in Cloud, a community-led economic development organisation was designed to assist ‘women-led’ tech companies and global leaders create 1$ billion in economic access by 2030. Their mission is to provide women with the tools, knowledge, and networks they need to reach their full potential and to strive to meet their goals. Through the community and advisor networks, mentors can foster access to education, investment, talent, and resources for global women technology entrepreneurs via events, programs, and online networks.
“This year’s WiC Microsoft Cloud Accelerator is more than just an effort to make economic contributions to the system by empowering entrepreneurs. It is about embracing the new normal and moving forward with a sense of community. It is about adopting self-empowerment and finding comfort in knowing where to turn for support with a community at your side. Most importantly, it is about collective growth and learning”.
