Women in Tech Finland network was born as an idea in fall 2012 by Marjo Miettinen and Anne Stenros. A home for the network was found at Technology Industries of Finland where Mervi Karikorpi and Piia Simpanen worked. By fall 2013, when the first bi-annual Women in Tech Forum was organized, Pia Erkinheimo also joined the team.

Women in Tech Finland grew in fall 2015 to last the whole week with different kinds of activities e.g. “Women in Tech Pitch Event” for female founders, and technology education event for teacher education students.

In October 2017, whole Finlandia Hall with more than 1000 seats was reserved for the 3rd Women in Tech Forum, and by organizing the week for the 2nd time Women in Tech Finland was part of the programme for the centenary of Finland’s independence in 2017.

In June 2018, Women of Aalto started as the new operative team of Women in Tech while Technology Industries of Finland still remained the home of the network.

In January 2020, Inklusiiv became the new home for Women in Tech Network and became also as the new operative team of the network.
