The Female Founders in Tech program was created in 2017 to identify and evaluate innovative technology solutions and unique talent for corporations while also providing access to capital, mentorship, and partnership opportunities to startups. The program has expanded to include programs in FinTech, InsurTech, Media, Mobility, Smart Cities, Healthcare, and 5G. Each program drives employee engagement, inclusion, and promotes corporate-startup collaboration.
