DEC Network to Host Inaugural, Virtual Women X Tech Conference Thursday

Women entrepreneurs—especially those in the tech world—have something to keep them warm at home Thursday during tomorrow's winter storm: The DEC Network’s inaugural, all-virtual Women X Tech event, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is designed to help women founders from all tech industries connect, learn, and grow their businesses.

The DEC Network will host its inaugural Women X Tech event tomorrow (Thursday February 3) as part of its continued strategy of uplifting women entrepreneurs—especially those in the tech world. And don’t worry about the winter storm—it’s a virtual event, and it’s free.

Scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Women X Tech is designed to help women founders from all tech industries connect, learn, and grow their businesses.  

A series of 30-minute Lightning Talk rounds will be interspersed with keynote and masterclass speakers. Attendees will be able to gain insights on securing funding in the tech industry, along with other strategies for success.  

Speakers at the virtual event will include:

  • Star Carter, co-founder and COO of Kanarys. Carter was named one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 100 Female Founders in 2021, one of AfroTech’s 31 Influential Black Women Who Accomplished Famous Firsts to Make History, also in 2021, and part of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in 2020.
