Leanne Robers's Biography

Leanne Robers is an award-winning entrepreneur, startup advisor and part-time psychotherapist.

Being the CEO that investors have always disregarded in favour of her male counterparts, Leanne empathises with other women founders and has dedicated her career to levelling the playing field and uplifting women. In 2015, she co-founded She Loves Tech, the world’s largest startup competition and accelerator programme for women-led tech startups.

She Loves Tech is a global platform committed to building an ecosystem for technology, entrepreneurship and innovation. Its mission is to help create opportunities for women and close the gender gap in startup funding.

Since its founding, She Loves Tech has helped over 8,000 startups raise more than US$250 million in funding and launch ground-breaking technologies. To date, the company operates in over 60 countries including US, China, Israel, Germany, Dubai, Pakistan, India and more. She Loves Tech is currently partnering with Microsoft to launch a US$1 billion fund for women entrepreneurs across Asia by 2030.

As the co-founder of three other companies, Leanne is also familiar with the real estate and hospitality, fintech and art and tech landscape. She is an active presence in the Singapore startup community and has mentored for various accelerator programmes such as the Singapore Tourism Board’s tech accelerator programme and Meta’s community accelerator programme.

Leanne’s speaking topics revolve around entrepreneurship, women leadership and mental wellness. In her free time, she works as a psychotherapist at her father’s private practice where she works with teenage girls and young women.

Her accolades include being selected as an Obama Leader (Asia Pacific) in 2019 and in 2020, Leanne was named Booking.com’s Tech Playmaker of the Year and won the Champion of Change award. She has been listed as Prestige’s Women of Power 2022 and featured in Tatler’s Front & Female.
