Forbes – The Top 50 Women In Tech 2018 – Limor Fried @forbes @adafruit


Forbes – The Top 50 Women In Tech 2018. Our Ladyada made the list this year! Thank you to everyone here at Adafruit that makes what Limor does possible, it’s a team of people that makes Adafruit… Adafruit! And thank you to our community and our customers!

Women don’t wait for the future. The 2018 Inaugural Top 50 Women In Technology lists identify three generations of forward-thinking technologists leading more than a dozen tech sectors across the globe. In November, we introduce America’s top 50 women working in STEM. The Forbes Europe list, which began this multipart series, launched on the eve of Ada Lovelace Day in October, honoring the first computer programmer. We close out the year with the Top 50 tech Moguls, Founders, Engineers, Innovators and Warriors in the world. *who happen to be women
