Kat Kennedy (Chief Product Officer at Degreed), Sunny Washington (founder and President of Because Learning) and Cydni Rogers Tetro joined ABC news to discuss Women Tech Council’s newly launched forum, The Women Founders Forum. Encouraging WTC’s platform of the economic impact of women, the Women Founders Forum is a group that will meet to discuss and promote the attributes, skills and resources necessary for women to be successful entrepreneurs and founders of their own companies.
With a male dominated industry, finding investors and those willing to help nurture a company is a challenge. To be successful founders, women need not only technical skills, but they also need to be able to manage projects efficiently, pitch ideas and connect with those who share their vision. The Women Founders Forum will be a place where women can share best practices in starting businesses and give opportunities for women to develop the necessary skills to be successful.
