Virginia Tan, founder of Lean In China and She LovesTech, said: “This is my second visit to Israel, and I am impressed each time I come. Up until now, all of the She Loves Tech competitions that I have attended have been organised and managed by men, but in Israel, this competition was planned driven and managed entirely by women. Thank you to everyone in Israel who has supported us. Women really amaze me.”

Extract from VirginiaTan’s speech

“She Loves Tech” is an international startup competition,which has, in a relatively short period of time, become the world’s largest-scale competition for female tech startups. I’ve seen much progress and passion among female startups here in Israel.

“I also must emphasise that She Loves Tech is not a competition that is exclusive to women, and that we are encouraging male entrepreneurs to enter our competition. Our goal is that in next year’s competition, the participating countries and regions will double or triple.

“Jack Ma, founder of one of the world’s largest businesses, Alibaba, said: ‘Women are the future leaders, because they are more thoughtful and considerate than men.’ His words motivated me, and when I returned to Beijing in 2013, I gathered my international network and established circlesof peer support, creating the foundations of Lean In China.

“Lean In China developed very quickly – I became friends with Jack Ma, used a variety of promotion techniques, and expanded it, with She Loves Tech being the most prominent expansion thus far.

“She Loves Tech was designed to establish a communityand market for women, and the initiative already has university chapters, a research center, several competitions, a startup platform and investment resources under its umbrella. In this short period of time, investors, CEOs, and powerful global business leaders have joined us from both China and across the globe, and international mainstream media have also started publishing information on our activities.

“It is clear that female entrepreneurs face roadblocks, including a lack of investment channels. I believe this is also a very difficult situation to change. At the same time, women who want to become entrepreneurs also lack social networks, professional support and leadership guidance.  We have already come up with some ideas of how to resolve these problems.

“Thus, in China we are at the core of establishing this international network. China is different from other countries, particularly in respect to female startups. In China there are many entrepreneurs, surpassing the number of those in other places including the Silicon Valley. There are also many millionaires in China, who have created more capital than those in other countries. Furthermore, in China, women make up the majority of consumers driving the economy.

“I believe that by empowering women in tech we can do even better in this competitive century. Today, female consumption accounts for about 70% of global consumption. By ignoring this opportunity, there has been a lack of developments in goods and services tailored to women. This is where my idea for Teja Ventures originated. We still are in its infancy, and very happy to receive support from a variety of sources.

“I would like to thank everyone in Israel for their dedication to this competition’s success.”
