Senior Lecturer, Dr Daphne Economou from the Faculty of Science and Technology’s Computer Science Department, took part in the Women in Tech Panel at the National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs (NACUE) Student Enterprise Conference.

The event, delivered by NACUE in partnership with My-Way, was bursting with inspirational talks, informative workshops and cool exhibitors, with speakers including Issac Howie Brewerton (founder of games company Pixel Blimp), Andrew Webber (Emerging Developer Audience Lead at Microsoft) and Una Doyle (founder of CreativeFlow.tv).

Speaking at the Women in Tech Panel, Dr Economou discussed ways of encouraging more women into entrepreneurship and STEM, including inspiring students to grab all of the opportunities that come their way and creating lots of smaller steps that encourage students along their journey. She also explained that working hard and finding what you are best at is the most important key to success.

The University of Westminster had the biggest presence of any institution at the event – with over 50 delegates and three volunteers showcasing the entrepreneurial attitudes of Westminster students.
