Splash Founder to Attend Collision Conference as part of the Women in Tech Initiative
Sinead Murphy has led production at Web Summit since 2013 and previously worked for Live Nation producing music festivals and concerts. As a woman producing the largest tech and startup conference in the world, she noticed that female participation in the tech sector has become a significant issue with women being underrepresented at these events. In an effort to even the gender ratio at their events, Web Summit began an initiative deemed “Commitment to Change”, and gave away 10,000 complimentary tickets to women in the tech industry worldwide.
“Collision is our vision for a new type of tech conference for America: A meeting place for people who are both building the companies of tomorrow and managing the companies of today. We want Collision to inspire and connect female entrepreneurs, senior executives and leaders. Our Builders Stage at Collision is where innovation happens. From design to development, this is where developers coders and creators showcase how they make it all happen. This provides a unique chance for our women developers to learn from the best in the industry, with world-class speakers like Brandworthy founder and software developer Elise Worthy and Mina Markham of IBM Design. You could meet the likes of Stewart Butterfield, Mark Suster, Christina Milian and plenty more of the world’s top investors and CEOs. There will also be people from the top startups in the world exhibiting.”
People could nominate female entrepreneurs to receive one of these 10,000 tickets to any of their four events including: Web Summit 2016 in Lisbon, SURGE in India, RISE in Hong Kong or Collision in New Orleans. Our very own founder and CEO, Crystal Sinclair was nominated and will be a featured attendee at Collision this year. “This is an extremely unique and inspiring opportunity. I look forward to learning more about the future of web development and connecting with a host of unique and forward-thinking creatives from around the world,” said Crystal when asked about the opportunity.
