Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month is one of the most important celebrations in the equality calendar. The event recognises the achievements of female academics, adventurers, and activists who have defined society as we know it but are regularly left out of the important and the everyday discussions. It is recognised by businesses, organisations, and Government bodies across the globe, leading to increased awareness of gender inequalities.

The Tech and SaaS world is crying out for a more diversity but is speckled with some amazing and inspiring women – some of which we’ve been lucky to have speak at BoS. Throughout March we are going to be sharing some of the brightest and best talks from BoS to celebrate the wonderful women we have welcomed on stage (often after they’ve been in the audience first).

Dupsy Abiola

Dupsy is Chief of Staff at Monzo and board member at Essentra. She is an accomplished senior executive, innovator, and entrepreneur with a passion for people, problem solving, and driving organisational progress. Prior to Monzo, she was Head of Global Innovation at International Airlines Group (IAG), one of the largest airline groups in the world. She worked on a wide range of innovation initiatives from integrating emerging technologies like advanced robotics to projects aimed at accelerating zero emission flight at Hangar 51. Outside of work, Dupsy sits as a non-executive director of a global FTSE250 components company and informally mentors social entrepreneurs and future leaders from under-represented groups.

We were honoured to have Dupsy speak at BoS Europe where she discussed everything from the murky world of investors to how to pitch your business effectively to customers, partners, and investors.

We first met Dupsy at our Lean Startup event where, not exactly backward about coming forward, she was first in line to pitch a question.

After graduating from Oxford University Dupsy worked as a barrister for a leading law firm before leaving to create Intern Avenue in late 2010. She’s passionate about promoting diversity, open access, and reducing youth unemployment. Dupsy’s work resulted in her inclusion on the Thomson Reuters Power List as one of Britain’s most influential black people under 40 and she is listed on the Silicon 60 top tech stars to watch. She has also pitched her business successfully on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.
