Founder and CEO
Eva Prakash is a freshman at Stanford University and a Stanford AI4ALL 2016 alum. She founded GIRL 2.0 in order to empower girls to learn to code and become leaders in technology. Eva hopes to address the gender gap by getting girls excited about technology as early as possible and making them believe that computer science is no longer just a boys club.
Co-Founder and CIO
Neal Prakash is a sophomore at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley. He strongly believes that men need to be a part of the diversity in tech conversation and play an active role in creating an inclusive environment. He also believes part of the problem is that women are discouraged to pursue computer science because it seems ‘boring’ and ‘geeky’. In actuality, tech is all about creative problem-solving, and Neal thinks we need to rebrand technology in a way that speaks to both men and women.
Hannah Sidhu is a senior at UC Berkeley. Living in Silicon Valley, coding is an extremely valuable skill to have. However, she has actively seen girls shy away from STEM classes because they are male dominated. Hannah wants to change this perception and create a culture where girls not only feel interested in learning how to code, but also empowered to code. She hopes to bring these girls the necessary resources and guidance they need to succeed.
