Women 2.0 is a non-profit organization whose vision is “to become a catalyst for change, mobilizing a global community of ambitious women entrepreneurs seeking to advance the world through technology,” according to the website.  

Founded by Shaherose Charania and Angie Chang, both named 'Most Influential Women in Technology' by Fast Company magazine in April 2010, Women 2.0 offers Founder Friday networking events in cities throughout the world, an annual start-up competition and a five-week incubator program. In addition, Women 2.0 partners with the technology industry’s most influential figures, such as Steve Blank (Godfather of 'Lean Start-up' methodology) and Dave McClure (Silicon Valley’s Start-up Prince). 

What sets Women 2.0 apart is the community Shaherose and Angie have created, which fosters and encourages conversations among women and addresses real issues and challenges to find real solutions and move forward.  Stats for Female Tech Charities Trending: Older & Mild
