Gretchen DeKnikker, ex-COO at SaaStr and Co-Founder of Social Pandas, who now is the COO of Girl Geek X, kindly took time to share with us her thoughts on the SaaS universe, challenges startups are facing today, and her own path and experience in enterprise SaaS.
It’s a sad fact that the tech industry is still vastly dominated by men. Currently, women hold only around 25% of all tech jobs. The number is even smaller for management roles. Only 14% of all CTO positions in tech companies belong to women. You’d think with all the innovative products, ideas and technologies launched every day, the tech industry would have figured out gender equality. Well, it hasn’t. As technology keeps advancing into every aspect of our lives, this is something that has to change. It is more important than ever to make women seen and female voices heard.
Today, we want to present you 7 outstanding female CTOs. These women are leading the way for women in tech in 2017 and beyond.
