Femergy Launches a Global Entrepreneuship Platform to Tackle Gender Gap in Tech
Femergy is a blockchain startup that’s designed for women to provide networking opportunities and accelerate their business. The platform is powered by blockchain and it’s a reward-based program which is a first of its kind in the world.
According to Femergy’s founder, Evelina Bajorune, innovation isn’t necessarily coming up with a new product but rather changing the behavior of users.
Femergy’s vision is to trigger long-term engagements and this can be achieved by enhancing communities to interact. The platform opted for blockchain technology because it has transparency and trust.
The Gender Gap In Tech
Other than technology, women have largely been misrepresented in many parts of the various industries. That said, latest statistics show that the number of women getting into the blockchain space is rising by the day. One of the greatest challenges faced by female entrepreneurs if funding or capital to implement their ideas.
Most times, women have to turn to their savings or borrow from relatives in order to fund their businesses. Such behavior shouldn’t be the case considering the many avenues of raising capital which are mostly taken up by men.
