Tech Crunch recently announced the top women in tech who really made a name for themselves in the past year. Most are women you will have never heard about but they took their vision and created a business or rose to the top of a business. I learn so much by reading the stories of women who are finding their way and will often reach out to them to make a connection.
This year Tech Crunch recognized 42 women who, by their mere example, help to advance the position of other women in STEM fields. For example:
Maria Bennett who is a trained biomedical engineer, CEO, president and founder of SPR Therapeutics, an eight-year-old, Cleveland, Ohio-based company that has developed a neurostimulation technology for chronic and acute pain that, very notably, doesn’t involve narcotics. (The therapy uses a threadlike wire placed through the skin, which connects to a wearable stimulator to activate target nerve fibers.)
