Girls in Tech, an international network that (and I quote) ‘seeks to empower and promote women in technology and entrepreneurship’, is officially launching its London chapter today in partnership with Google, Criteo and Eventbrite.

The organization is also due to announce its list of top 100 women in tech in the European ecosystem, which you can find below.

We’re proud to find a The Next Web writer on there as well – don’t forget to congratulate our UK editor Jamillah Knowles on Twitter or elsewhere!

The list of top women in tech in Europe, from 19 countries in fact, was put together by Girls in Tech and 14 judges, based on their leadership either locally or internationally as well as their contribution to tech and innovation.

Below is Girl in Tech’s list, in no particular order or ranking – more specifically, in the order that we were sent them earlier today.

(If you think there are women missing in this list, let us know in the comments).
