“Becoming a part of NCWIT is a great honor; the coalition represents the best of the best in technology, and we are proud to be working alongside organizations like Apple, Google and the Anita Borg Institute for Women in Technology,” said Adriana Gascoigne, founder, Girls in Tech. “One of our main tenets is to increase the number of women entrepreneurs in technology, and by working with NCWIT’s Entrepreneurial Alliance, we can provide even more support and encouragement to those looking to take the next step in starting their own IT business.”

The NCWIT Entrepreneurial Alliance addresses the causes and interventions concerning the small number of women involved in starting businesses, filing patents, and transferring technology in the IT field as its member organizations work to increase women's representation.
