It gives us incredible pleasure to share with you this very special list of the most prominent Russian-speaking female leaders of tech companies. Majority of these companies operate internationally while having their roots from Eastern Europe. Businesses range from being early-stage with a developed product and early sales to mature organizations with dozens of millions in revenue. Most of these companies develop IT solutions or have Internet/IT as a significant part of their offering. Each of these companies has at least one Russian-speaking female as a C-level executive or a part of the core founding team. The list below consists of 100 people, for your convenience we have organized the list by sectors. Please note, that we arranged the founders in alphabetical order by the names of their respective companies and in no way by their success or size of the business or any other qualitative parameters, as we believe that each and every person in this list is a real hero by herself and deserves equal respect no matter whether they have already achieved certain success with their venture or not yet. As a VC firm investing in Russian-speaking global tech entrepreneurs, we are incredibly proud of our female peers and are set to continue supporting them in the future.
