Behind the award is Abelia, the NHO Association for knowledge and technology companies and ODA-Networks, the Nordic region's largest network for women in tech.
- It is very nice to be on this list along with a number of other skilled tech women. Technology will affect most areas and sectors in the future, and diversity in terms of gender, cultural background, education and experience will be central to how we, as a society, will be able to exploit the opportunities that technology offers, says Borrebæk.
