The business world had been a once male-dominated scene, but since females started to become part of the workforce, that factor significantly changed the industry's dynamics.

Females from all over the world now take an active part in both emerging and highly influential businesses and proved once and for all that running a successful empire is not dependent on the leader's gender.

However, most of these femme entrepreneurs are not exactly household names yet compared to their male counterparts such as Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. But even then, they wield a certain influence and power that is worth watching out for.



1. Amy Chang
Amy Chang is now the CEO and founder of a digital assistant company called Accompany. It is a service that helps busy professionals look for prospect markets, develop professional relationships, integrate news and industry trends through analytics and personalized data.

Before that however, Chang was part of the board of directors of Cisco, and also worked for Google as an executive in Google Analytics for seven years. She is also a consultant for Hubspot, Datorama and ClearSlide.


2. Amanda Signorelli
As the CEO of Techweek, Amanda Signorelli works hard to develop and bring forward more women in the tech and startup industry. Techweek is an annual conference for tech entrepreneurs based in Chicago, it is held to celebrate and support the city's local tech industry. It also organizes conferences outside Chicago such as in Washington, D.C., Toronto and New York City.


3. Julia Taylor Cheek
Health-based tech are already starting to become a thing, and Julia Taylor Cheek is leading the way to bring that convenience to more and more people. Cheek is the CEO of EverlyWell, a startup healthcare service based in Austin, Texas, that allows people to order and conduct lab tests from the comfort of their own home. The results are then posted online in simple and concise language, so the patient can understand even without seeking a doctor's assistance.


4. Whitney Wolfe
Online dating apps are usually designed with the male user in mind, but Whitney Wolfe introduces her own with a twist. As CEO of Bumble, Wolfe created the dating app with women in mind and because of that, it has a different dynamic - males should wait for females to make their first move. Wolfe also co-founded the famous dating app, Tinder.


5. Kimberli Cheung Wright
Many people, especially millennials love to travel, and Kimberli Cheung Wright is offering a better and more convenient way to plan these travels with the use of Trepic. Users of Trepic can easily plan trips just by browsing through images. Through analytics, the app can also suggest destinations that are preselected based on the user's preferences.


Although admittedly, the number of women that are leading a business, especially in the tech industry, is not as high as the number of men who already found great success in it. However, it does not also mean that the industry has no potential for more female leaders and influencers who can tap a niche market and strike gold.
