Ms.Tech is a social impact focused, membership organization with a learning community that provides women in technology ventures and innovative companies the inspiration, knowledge and connections to reach their full potential.


We are a group of tech women in business and business women in tech. October 2010, we began as a private, invitation only facebook group with eight women, and the intention on offering a different space – one that encouraged others to speak up and help other women rather than stand by and solely promote our own work. By answering and helping others in a forum, we showcase our skills, expertise and all while helping another woman overcome a hurdle in her way.

We create experiences that inspire and accelerate both online and offline conversations, improving the representation and ultimately the success of women in business and technology. When our community invests in First Class membership it allows us to propel the movement toward our mission further and faster. Strengthening our foundation, we continue to gain important feedback and critical insights so we can continue to develop the best-in-class programs designed specifically for women and package that up for organizations like 1871’s {WiSTEM} program where we customized a 12-week program and curriculum around set parameters. And finally, our annual summit called Fear Paradox where we help facilitate the next level of risk taking — through inviting executives, founders, artists and technologists to reach for the edges of fear and taking calculated risks.

Less than 3% of venture capital funding goes to startups led by women – this was the flame that started our fire and it’s on our agenda to change these numbers. Through membership dollars, we are enabled to pursue research, capture data, and on a journey to validate or invalidate assumptions around bias, education and create awareness.

Join today to access networking through your local collective and a wide variety of local and national programs and events. Your membership makes possible the activities of a national organization promoting tech and entrepreneurship value on your behalf, and gives you access to professional development and exclusive benefits that can only be provided by an organization with the scale and reach of Ms.Tech.
