Acredius is delighted to announce its strategic partnership with Women in Tech (WiT). This renowned global organisation promotes inclusion, diversity, and equity in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) disciplines. This collaboration signifies our joint commitment to empowering women, fostering financial inclusion, and catalysing sustainable economic growth.

WiT has emerged as a leading force in the global landscape. It boasts a robust network of over 200,000 members representing diverse backgrounds. These members come from all walks of life, without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, class, age, or sexual orientation. Further, its comprehensive approach encompasses education, business, social inclusion, and advocacy. Together with WiT, we aim to create meaningful opportunities for women to excel in STEAM fields.

As a pioneering Fintech platform, Acredius aims to connect small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a pool of international investors. Our advanced AI and blockchain technology drive enhanced transparency and facilitate financial inclusion. While initially focusing on Swiss SMEs, our vision extends to supporting businesses and startups across Europe and beyond.

Acredius and Women in Tech unite to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in tech and finance. In light of this shared vision, our collaboration aims to empower women entrepreneurs, cultivate their confidence, and forge pathways to success in STEAM domains. This alliance marks a significant leap towards fostering sustainable, inclusive economic growth.

Correspondingly, Acredius takes pride in leveraging our crowdlending and equity crowdfunding expertise. We use this expertise to support WiT’s vibrant community through our platform. By bridging the gap between female entrepreneurs and the investment world, we facilitate their inclusion in finance and business. 

Moreover, Acredius leverages the power of web3 technology. This allows us to provide innovative alternative financing tools, including equity crowdfunding. These tools are designed to nurture and support outstanding business plans.

Anna Raafat, COO of Acredius, expressed excitement about the partnership, stating, “We are proud to collaborate with Women in Tech to advance our shared mission of promoting diversity and inclusion in the tech and finance sectors. By leveraging our platform’s capabilities and introducing innovative technologies like blockchain, we can work together to empower women and entrepreneurs, support European SMEs and startups, and promote sustainable economic growth.” 

Additionally, Anna herself had the privilege of speaking at WiT’s Global Summit 2023, further cementing our collaboration and shared vision.

The alignment of Acredius and WiT within the blockchain ecosystem of Cardano sets the stage for enhanced collaboration and joint initiatives. Furthermore, recognizing the profound impact of blockchain technology on transparency and financial inclusion, we are steadfast in our commitment to harness its potential. Through such partnerships, we aim to drive positive change in the tech and finance industries. In doing so, by creating an environment that embraces diversity, empowers women, and ensures equal opportunities for all, we look forward to impacting our communities.

Finally, the strategic partnership between Acredius and Women in Tech marks a significant milestone in advancing diversity and inclusion. For that, we insist on empowering women, supporting entrepreneurs, and fostering sustainable economic growth by combining Acredius’ fintech expertise with WiT’s global movement. Join us as we collectively shape a future celebrating diversity, equality, and opportunities for all in the STEAM fields.
