The CloudNOW Awards recognize outstanding women in cloud and converging technology–honoring female led teams who have used technology to solve real world business problems; contribute to society/ community in a significant way, or; innovate and move the industry forward. Each of the top winners has been invited to present the project that garnered her the spot on our list in a friendly ‘pitch-style-competition meets TED-talks’ where we will name the ‘Top Women in Cloud’.

Meet the Top Women in Cloud, check out cool projects, recruit elite cloud and technology candidates, and support CloudNOW’s non-profit mission and scholarship fund for STEM.
