Women entrepreneurs and investors are taking on a leading role in the creation of new technological solutions, and how they’re commercialized within and outside of Israel. IE, Hub:raum, and 8200’s W2W network are coming together on this event that is as much about sharing insights as it is about networking, and IE will be on the lookout for high-potential female entrepreneurs that may be a fit for an IE program of study.
