Check out these 400+ companies that are transforming the future.

By Shaherose Charania (Co-founder & CEO, Women 2.0)

What did we learn this week? Members of our community are launching epic companies and bringing tech to all kind of industries, from all corners of the earth.

Of course, we already knew that. But we didn’t realize how many of you are out there.

For those who are checking in for the first time, we’ll catch you up to speed. On February 12, you're invited to attend the first Women 2.0 Awards ceremony, where tech’s brightest and rising stars will come together to celebrate in San Francisco.

We'll present 13 awards, one of which you — our community — helped us pick because your insight matters to us. Big time.

We can’t tell you which five founders we've invited the the stage to receive a Founder to Watch Award (you’ll have snag a ticket to see for yourself), but we've contacted the five winners who will be joining us on stage on Feb 12.

It was a difficult decision. See the long sample of the incredible candidates listed below. We think we’ll probably need to throw another ceremony to celebrate all this awesomeness — there’s just too much barrier-breaking going on.

Last quick note: Tickets are going fast. If you want to make sure you’re part of this empowering night, don’t wait to reserve your spot. Ticket prices increase on Feb. 1, so grab yours now.

Okay… enough from us, take a look at the list below to see what’s happening in the world of tech (and beyond) by founders in the Women 2.0 community!
