Women in Wireless comes to Singapore

Women in wireless logoWomen in Wireless is the latest entry to the growing presence of women targeted professional networking communities with specific interest in technology in Singapore. They are looking for passionate women working in mobile and digital media to lead and join the local chapter.

Leading the initiative for women professionals in mobile and digital media to step forward for this opportunity is Smaato Singapore,  a US based mobile ad optimiser and mobile advertising platform. Smaato is among the list of supporting companies behind the Women in Wireless organization which also includes Celtra, ESPN Mobile, Jumptap and NexAge.

Marcus Tan, Managing Director of Smaato’s Asia Pacific Operations was host of the ‘Women in Wireless Emerging Chapter’ mixer held at Smaato’s office last Tuesday evening. Acknowledging the traditional dominance of men within the mobile and wireless technology industry, he urges interested women to step forward and take on the challenge. Citing the illustrious example of  Jerri Devard, Chief Marketing Officer, Nokia as well as a prominent member of the Women in Wireless community, Marcus believes that the coming together of like-minded women professionals to connect and work together  will serve as an impetus to realizing the organization’s mission. Women in Wireless aims to promote and develop female leaders in mobile and digital media.
