Austin, Texas is buzzing. Leading women from around the world gathered here for Dell’s annual Women’s Entrepreneur Network conference which ended on Tuesday.

Following our special report on women in tech in our last print magazine, Tech City news has been in attendance. Sucessful women have talked about their unique challenges in starting up their businesses and how they have overcome them.

So far, events have included a QnA with Michael and Susan Dell, panel discussions on big data and breakout discussions on subjects such as storytelling and security.

More will be happening today and we’ve got our ears to the ground to keep you up to date.
