Women In Cloud is pleased to announce the 5 finalists for the Inaugural #CloudInnovateHER Pitch Challenge. This pitch challenge aims to help women tech entrepreneurs across the global market develop, showcase, and win enterprise customers.

As demands in enterprise tech grow, the need for products and services that address these unique challenges increases. Enterprise tech is one of the fastest-growing and most influential sectors of the tech industry with enterprise software spending expected to reach $457 billion this year, but the numbers indicate that women are largely being left out of that economic opportunity. That’s why WiC is generating new ways like the #CloudInnovateHER Pitch Challenge for women tech entrepreneurs to get better access to funding, education, and a supportive community.

Having received many inspiring and innovative solution nominations, we want to thank all nominees for participating in the first-ever partner pitch challenge.  Solutions are evaluated for Solutions will be evaluated for originality, market feasibility, and use of cloud and AI solutions. The nomination review panel consisted of business leaders within the Women in Cloud community.
