While in the IT sector they had a 22.5% stake in 2010, they reached slightly more than 17% in 2017.
This trend is not limited to IT staff, but also to the business sector. Women only started 10 innovative businesses who wanted to invest in venture capital. However, they receive 23% less money than men created.
