Two finalists from Gothenburg at Nordic Women in Tech Awards
The annual event Nordic Women in Tech Awards celebrates female role models of the Nordic tech scene and will take place on November 10th, and for the first time in Gothenburg at Lindholmen Science Park. Two entrepreneurs from Gothenburg are nominated for the prestigious awards: Wilma Emanuelsson (Entrepreneur of the Year) and Kinga Grenda (Mentor of the Year). The gala will be live-streamed.
On November 10th, Nordic female entrepreneurs in the tech industry will be recognized, celebrated, and awarded. The aim is to highlight female role models, show good examples of their success stories to inspire new generations of female entrepreneurs and work to create greater equality in the industry. Among the finalists are two women from Gothenburg: Wilma Emanuelsson and Kinga Grinda.
Wilma Emanuelsson is CEO and founder of iTrack Reading, the world’s first program that uses eye-to-speech for reading with dyslexia. Using eye tracking, a technology that reads the user’s eye movements on the screen, the program creates an eye-to-speech function that reads out the content in real-time.
Kinga Grinda is CTO and co-founder of the startup Adsorbi, which manufactures bio-based plates that help museums and archives preserve art. The tiles capture harmful air pollution, can be easily stored together with the artwork, and are cost-effective.
The ceremony will be streamed live here.
The gala is organized by Wonder Coders in collaboration with Women in Tech Gothenburg, with support from the Trade and Industry Group at Gothenburg & Co. Gothenburg’s female entrepreneurial tech scene will be highlighted during the gala.
