Last Tuesday was also quite the day for us, as CEO and founder of CxD Aps, Aviaja Borup Lynggaard was one of 10 finalists to pitch, the company and Hopspots, to a jury at the EU commission’s Digital4Her conference in Brussels. The purpose of the conference, for politicians, entrepreneurs, investors etc., is to get women to play a bigger role in the tech-world. At the moment the tech-world is dominated by men, and in general only a third of all entrepreneurs are women, but within the tech-world it is far fewer than that. That’s a huge problem as many people develop things from their own point of view, which will have an effect on what technologies that are developed. Future products have to be a result of diversity, and women also have to affect technology, as both sexes are going to use it. Therefore, we are proud and happy at CxD to be able to contribute to this development, and hopefully the conference can encourage more women to establish tech-companies. At the conference Lynggaard won an investment sparring session with Nordic Business Angels.
