EIT Woman Award 2020

The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) is an independent body of the European Union set up in 2008 to deliver innovation across Europe. The EIT WOMAN Award recognises the outstanding achievements of women entrepreneurs and leaders from EIT Innovation Communities.

This award recognises inspiring female entrepreneurs and leaders driving innovation and was initiated in 2018.

 

 

Cristina Aleixendri Muñoz, bound4blue (Barcelona, Spain) supported by EIT Climate-KIC won the EIT Woman Award 2020.

Cristina said: ‘I am optimistic that we will be able to reverse the situation of women in tech and in entrepreneurship. If each female entrepreneur empowers two women to join the start-up ecosystem and supports them to become tech entrepreneurs, the increase in women in tech and entrepreneurship would not be incremental but exponential in base-2, which is what we need.
