Earlier this week, BostInnovation, a tech blog focused on the Greater Boston Area community, published a list of 12 of its favorite Boston-area female CEOs on Twitter. The list included the CEOs of Constant Contact, ZipCar and social media marketing companies among others and is intended to encourage members of the community to follow these female executives and learn from them.
It is often said that one of the ways to attract and retain more women in tech is to give them good role models. In addition to continued discussion on the topic and increased efforts to build a community and network of female entrepreneurs, there is still a lot more to be done to encourage more entrepreneurs. In the spirit of BostInnovation, here is a list of 9 Israel-based female entrepreneurs in tech on Twitter and a recent tweet of theirs. Please note this is by no means a comprehensive list. Feel free to add other female founders and CEOs in the comments below.
