Four Israeli women are included in the prestigious Girls-In-Tech’s Top 100 in Europe
. The UK branch of the Silicon Valley-based organization scoured 19 countries for its most influential women in high tech list.
The IT group says it focuses on “women’s innovative and entrepreneurial achievements in technology” and seeks to “empower women in technology by simply providing them with more visibility.”
The four Israelis to make the prestigious list include Orit Hashay, Brayola; Gali Ross, Razoss; Amit Knaani, ooVoo
; and Moran Bar, VentureGeeks.
The Top 100 list was unranked – making all nominees equally worthy of being on the list.
Hashay is CEO and founder of Brayola
– an online site for buying bras. A serial entrepreneur, she was also behind a customer opinion site on getting married
Knaani is product manager at video chat solution provider, ooVoo and co-founded the child-safe video platform Vikido
Ross co-founded Razoss, a company that develops personalized tool bars. Razoss is backed by the likes of Yossi Vardi and Ron Zuckerman, and was recently included on Calcalist
‘s list of ‘small Israeli start-ups that bigger companies should buy.’
And Bar, of course, is the founder of technology blog Newsgeek
The Girls-In-Tech group nominated women entrepreneurs from the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Spain, Greece, Turkey and Israel.
