The use of Artificial Intelligence technologies will expand across industries and entire societies, becoming a basic part of everyday life in the years to come. The lack of gender diversity that already impacts the tech industry in many other domains can be reduced if diversity amongst entrepreneurs is promoted. Therefore, this prize aims to have a positive influence on the future of current and upcoming professionals by encouraging profile equity.

The purpose of this prize is to inspire women to take part in AI-related career paths, providing a platform to talents who have launched startups whose products are based on these technologies.

For the second year, Women In AI and Capgemini join forces to launch this award, in order to support women as essential stakeholders in the development of emerging technologies, from data scientists to business leaders. Internally, the Women@Capgemini global program sets the overarching guidelines around gender balance across the Group.

Konstantin Neumann Growth Mentor at INHUBBER

Nxtlvl and I consult Dr. Mechik in business development for the last one and a half years. Since I got to know her, Elena turned around a company from a small startup into one of the fastest growing AI and blockchain platforms in Germany and probably Europe. Dr. Mechik has a deep knowledge in both technology and feeling for leading an organisation toward a successful startup. I am honored to be able to recommend her for the AI person of the year award.
