Cindy Gallop, the founder of If We Ran the World and Make Love Not Porn, told InspireFest 2015 that she wants to see women making huge exits from start-ups.

On the subject of the ongoing gender bias in the technology industry she said confidently: “All those barriers will fall away from all of us when we can prove that women can make a s*** ton of money.”

She told would-be founders to realise that their business model can be anything they want it to be.
