On August 30, 2017, Naomi Maryles (DLA Piper Israel Business Development) participated as a judge in the She Loves Tech Israel competition, where 10 Israeli startups pitched their companies to win the first prize of 2 free tickets to China to compete in the final global competition.
The event in Israel was just one of a number of competitions held worldwide – in Canada, China, Hong Kong SAR, Germany, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Singapore – with the finals held during an international conference in Beijing, China.
She Loves Tech's goal is to provide a platform for international and Chinese tech companies, investors, entrepreneurs, startups and consumers together, to promote technology for women and women in technology. We also had the privilege of sponsoring the She Loves Tech Israel opening event in June as part of our DLA Piper Israel Women's Leadership Series, which is a series of events and networking opportunities for female English speaking professionals in Israel. Naomi addressed the audience about DLA Piper’s commitment to the support and advancement of female entrepreneurs and professionals.
