Women 2.0 this week announced the launch of its new website and the addition of a membership offering online and offline products for innovators and entrepreneurs in the technology space.
According to the organization, which describes itself as a media company at the intersection of women, entrepreneurship and technology, these will be the first “of several changes to help scale its impact driving diversity in technology.”
“For years we’ve been asked, ‘How do I join Women 2.0?’ and ‘How do I access your network while not in Silicon Valley?’” says Shaherose Charania, CEO and cofounder of Women 2.0, a Vancouver native now living in San Francisco. “With platforms like Google+ we are able to connect founders with investors, anywhere in the world and reach more people who are driving change in technology by starting companies.”
“We are moving forward with a clear vision: that not only is the next Mark Zuckerberg more likely a Maria, but also that she is more than likely living outside from Silicon Valley,” added Charania. “Women 2.0 plans to be there for her first steps wherever and whoever she may be.”
Women 2.0 says it is furthering its commitment to support innovators and entrepreneurs wherever they live through new programs that are delivered virtually.
