WIC & TIE Women #CloudInnovateHER Pitch Challenge 


It’s happening! #CloudInnovateHER Pitch Challenge - Digital! This pitch challenge aims to bridge that gap while bringing in a competitive edge to the summit with an opportunity to present technologies to create a sustainable impact in today’s world.

Submit your B2B enterprise-ready cloud solutions today to compete with the best and brightest women of our generation.

There are disproportionately fewer women founding startups that serve the enterprise. Only 2% of female entrepreneurs are founding B2B companies, compared with 12% of men. Furthermore, if women entrepreneurs received funding on par with their male colleagues, some estimates indicate that the global economy could experience a $5 trillion boost, studies suggest.

Finalists will present their solutions to the crowd and compete for a chance to win a laptop and PR promotion. Be recognized as an up-and-coming leader in the enterprise tech space, and compete for the top prize of $5,000 in Cash and Cloud credits to contribute to your business growth. 

Selected finalists will also be included for the opportunity to participate in the annual global pitch challenge at the WIC Annual Summit for the chance to win the grand prize of $10K.


Qualifying is easy. Women-led companies developing an enterprise-ready cloud solution that’s earned less than $10 million in the past 12 months qualify to enter. Enter your business pitch or encourage others who qualify to enter.

Solutions will be evaluated for originality, market feasibility, and the use of Cloud and AI Solutions.

Bring us your best pitch. Enter today!


The winner of #CloudInnovateHER Pitch Challenge (July 15, 2021) will advance to the TIE Women Global Pitch Competition for the chance to compete for $100,000

Women In Cloud in partnership with M12, Founders Live, The WIT Network, IAMCP, UN EQUALS,  Microsoft Alumni Network, SHEROES, Arielle for Africa, Women in Alliances, Black Women Talk Tech, and Black Channel Partner Alliance is conducting a survey to better understand the financial, operational and emotional impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on women in tech.

We're all in this together. For the past year, Women in Cloud has taken an active role to identify policies and solutions to prevent economic losses for female tech entrepreneurs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Very shortly after the onset of the pandemic, Women in Cloud issued a COVID-19 Impact Survey to determine the effects of the outbreak on small-to-medium-size businesses led by women technology professionals in the United States and beyond.

The survey collected information from businesses across a breadth of industries, on the financial, operational and emotional impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and their employees. It also collected insights on the resources, tools and policies necessary to support business’ recovery from the impacts of COVID-19, and prevent or minimize the damage to SMEs in future global crisis situations.

This year, we will publish a 2021 edition of the COVID-19 impact survey and report comparing and analyzing results between 2020/2021 around the impact and recovery expectations, and needs of women technology entrepreneurs as a result of the pandemic.

If you are a women led technology company, please consider taking 15 minutes to share how you and your business have been impacted over the last 12 months, and your expectations for the year ahead.

As countries, states, and cities respond to the COVID-19 virus, WiC wants to understand the effects on our community so that we can best advocate for possible policy changes and also leverage the report for recommending access for emergency funding and programs to sustain your companies.

*If things are uncertain or might change, that's totally fine! We'd still very much welcome your responses!

Why is it important to act now? This information will help in the following ways:

  1. Development of a report that policy makers and corporations can use for developing policies and economic opportunities that support economic recovery
  2. Development of evergreen solution recommendations that tech companies can take to prevent economic loss in any future crisis situations
  3. Ability to aide in policy development and business continuity for this segment to continue to help women entrepreneurs

Note: As this is a continually evolving situation, we may resend this survey for updated responses, or follow up with you individually on any additional information we may need, so we are asking you to identify your business on the survey and include contact information.

 We Believe Every Woman, Every Child Must Have Access To A Basic Mask

The COVID-19 pandemic poses serious risks to the hard-won gains made towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal #3 on basic health needs for women and children.

Half of the world’s population does not have access to basic health care. With the influx of this pandemic, we are seeing a significant population encounter a common issue which is women and children don’t have access to mask for their physique. Often, the masks available to them are designed with a man’s body frame in mind which ultimately results in a lack of ideal protection. Women In Cloud is taking collective action to empower the community to create access to 100,000 masks for women & children around the world.
