On June 30, exciting keynotes from San Francisco and Paris, as well as local tech entrepreneurs and investors will gather to discuss the future of investment in female-led high potential start-ups in Ireland. It’s a subject close to our hearts at Silicon Republic.
“Women-led private technology companies are more capital-efficient, achieving 35% higher ROI, and, when venture-backed, bringing in 12% higher revenue than male-owned tech companies.”
