Ida Tin, the Danish CEO and co-founder of Berlin-based mobile app Clue, was the recipient of the Europioneers' Female Web Entrepreneur of the Year award, given out at the Slush conference in Helsinki on Thursday.
The Dane is the developer of Clue, a free downloadable app that is designed to help women track their menstrual cycle by entering data about their period, sex drive, mood, fluid and pain.
The app has seen rapid growth within the mobile app world, with active users increasing from one million to two million in just weeks. It recently secured $7 million from two major investors, making it the fastest growing women’s health app, according to a recent press release.
"It's an honour to be recognized for this Europioneers Award, especially considering the talent, innovation and skill of the other nominees. I’m proud to be working with an exceptional team, who have helped to grow Clue into a truly global digital health platform," Tin said.
Speaking to The Local, Tin discussed the positive influence that more women could bring to the world of tech.
“Being in an environment that has both fantastic men and women working together really brings an element of diversity to the work place, everyone’s strengths complimenting each other to create the best finished product," she said.
