In a world that is run by Silicon Valley, how do we, women entrepreneurs, create businesses that change, inspire, and move this world for the better without being held back by the hurdles and obstacles the tech industry often throws our way. How do we create the impact we want and realise our full potential, by leveraging technology to work for us, not against us.

This show cuts through the status quo and is your guide to exploring technology confidently.

Welcome to Cutting Through Tech.

I’m your host, Maxim Cramer, and I’m on a mission to secure the digital future for us by doubling the number of female-founded tech businesses.

I’m a software engineer, designer, coach and consultant who’s worked on apps that had over a million downloads in a day, and featured in apple retail stores all across the world. I work with female founders, entrepreneurs just like you, to maximise their impact by creating world-class software-based businesses.

I’m a women. I’m in tech. and I’m the CEO of a business that is looking to make a mark.

Stay tuned, because on this show technology becomes as simple as everyday English, removing the barriers so you can think, strategise, and execute like a Female Tech CEO.
