One of the most important things a startup company can do is get visibility for their brand, product, or service. However, making others in the NCWIT community and the public aware that you are part of a national movement to increase women’s participation in computing also matters.
Visibility for Female Founders
NCWIT Entrepreneurial Heroes are women innovators from startups, small companies, and non-profits, whose ideas and products are changing the way we think, work, play, and communicate. Recommend someone you know for a Heroes interview, and share the podcast library of more than 90 interviews with many amazing entrepreneurial women. // (ncwit.org/heroes)
Awareness with the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Community
Put your internships in front of thousands of young technical women who have been recognized for their interests and demonstrated work in computer science and IT fields. Show them that startup companies are great places to work and are an excellent way to enter the workforce. // (aspirations.org)

Connect With the NCWIT Community
NCWIT has more than 1,240 member organizations including leaders in K-12 education that reach more than half of the girls in the United States, distinguished representatives of academia from more than 650 universities, and hundreds of executives and founders from global companies and startups, as well as thousands of professional women from affinity groups. One of the best ways to build relationships with member representatives is at the annual NCWIT Summit. // (ncwit.org/summit)
