Female Founders of Tech: From Paredes to Yu

Business Cloud

CEO of Suade, Diana Paredes, was included in Business Cloud’s Female Founders of Tech article.

Proving that tech is no longer ‘male, pale and stale’, BusinessCloud was inundated with nominations for its Female Founders of Tech list.

Historically tech has been a male-dominated industry, which is why BusinessCloud launched a mission to find examples of women who have used tech in some way and turned it into a first-rate business.

Publication of the list builds on the incredible reception our 100 Female Role Models in Tech list enjoyed in 2016.

The list received over 3 million impressions on Twitter and won widespread praise but this year we decided to tweak the criteria to focus on women who have been involved in founding a tech company.

The judges wanted the 101 finalists – which they ended up pushing to 104 due to three businesses being co-founded by a female team – to be a celebration of the incredible women across the UK that are driving growth and innovation through tech.
