The people behind Web Summit, the quintessential tech startup forum, are hosting RISE next May in Hong Kong. And guess what, they’ve heard the complaints and grouses of the women, and are committing to supporting women in tech and female entrepreneurs by sending them a free conference ticket to attend next year’s RISE conference.
I think this is a GREAT initiative: we’ve long lamented that these tech forums are like an exclusive gentlemen’s club and very few women, if any at all, are featured to speak and/or attend.
