At yesterday’s TechWomen Community Event, all five Pitch Day seed grant prizes went to teams representing countries in Africa: Cameroon, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tunisia, and Kenya! All 19 presentations from Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa were so inspiring, I am sure the judges had a tough time deciding which to honor. It was a pleasure to spend the evening with my daughter Jessica.
I am so very proud to have been one of the Impact Advisors for Tunisia! Our WAKTECH action plan to improve transportation in Tunis included six from Tunisia and three from the San Francisco Bay Area:
- Melek Jebnoun- Tunisia Emerging Leader
- Raoudha Lagha- Tunisia Emerging Leader
- Salma Saidi- Tunisia Emerging Leader

- Sinda Soussia- Tunisia Emerging Leader
- Yosr Tammar- Tunisia Emerging Leader

Early tomorrow, TechWomen shifts from the San Francisco Bay Area to Washington DC. What a month this has been!
