I joined JWiT because...
It is a perfect platform to network with like-minded aspiring women MBA candidates and directly interact and learn from the experiences of successful women in this field. At the same time, the diversity of companies participating in JWiT will ensure a holistic exposure to all things tech, right from eCommerce and fintech, to big data and biotech.
As a future women business leader, I also want to leverage my past experience of project management and make tangible contribution to and further this very important cause of enhancing the participation of women in the technology sector.
Because the rapid pace of evolution of the technology industry presents innumerable exciting opportunities. Established and emerging players and numerous startups along with the PE and VC firms all make the landscape of the sector extremely interesting and challenging. The growth of the sector will also depend on how well innovation enabling investments are made and commercialized. Over the past year, I have been following the sector and have also co-authored a book chapter in a book on innovation in emerging markets, which shows that developing countries are well positioned for technology revolution and thus, international M&As, technology transference and capital flows will also play a major role in how the future of tech shapes up. I am eager to leverage my education and experience and be a part of and contribute to these exciting times. Hence, I #DaretoTech!
