At Web Summit Rio, we want to celebrate the women-founded startups in our network. Here are just a few attending this year’s event. 

Web Summit Rio is committed to changing the gender ratio at our events and empowering women across the globe by fostering networking opportunities, building mentorship programs, and nurturing our online women in tech community.
