“Technology can be really empowering and, especially for women, it can raise their status in the workplace and society in general”, says Emi Takemura, an entrepreneur and an avid supporter of the startup and education ecosystem. As the public use of the internet has expanded in the mid-1990s, A.I. and IoT is becoming a game-changer in every corner of our life. Yet the number of women in the technology companies is far from enough. Why?
Emi embarked on startup journey to co-found Peatix Inc., a global event registration, management and ticketing platform, Unreasonable Labs Japan, a global social entrepreneur accelerator, and FutureEdu Tokyo to advocate the importance of re-imagining education via film screenings, events, and a blog. Emi rose to the occasion to become a steam engine in the STEAM world, having learned a lot about leadership, the challenge of launching a business and ensuring of its future success and more importantly knowing yourself and your long-term vision.
At this event Emi will be discussing her career path in entrepreneurship, Japan’s women’s issues and education, and why tech needs more women and women need more tech.
