"Tenemos que formar parte del diseño de esta tecnología. Tenemos que ser inventoras. Tenemos que pensar que esta capacidad de crear va a permitir restaurar el equilibrio que perdimos en un momento determinado. Convertirnos de una forma en comerciantes globales, en inventoras."

Patricia Araque describes herself as a full-time entrepreneur in constant transition. She is Co-Founder and Director of Ellas 2.0, a platform that seeks to increase the number of female technology-based ventures, and carries the message of Women 2.0 to Spanish-speaking communities. It also coordinates off-line operations of Women 2.0 in Spain and Latin America. As she says, none of these projects is passionate both as Alma, his daughter, the best start-up that her partner and she have co-founded together.

Degree in Advertising and Public Relations from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, in 2004 she decided to leave the world of press offices and marketing departments. She started working at Watchtower Training, an English school that over the years has allowed nearly thousand girls and kids between 3 and 17 years to learn the potential of the English language as a communication tool, and has shown them that there is a big world beyond the small town of Madrid in which they are growing. Passionate about education, she also devotes her time to build Corner Class, an app that aims at changing the way in which families are involved in the educational process of their children.

Patricia believes that women and technology will be able to change the world, balancing it and making it the right place it should be.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
