Rewired State
CEO and Founder
United Kingdom

Emma is the founder of Rewired State and Young Rewired State: Coding a better country.

Rewired State is the largest independent developer network in the UK with over 1000 software developers and designers, bringing about digital innovation and revolution through rapid prototyping events (hack and modding).

Young Rewired State is its philanthropic arm with the challenge to find and foster every child driven to teach themselves how to code, introduce them to open data – creating a worldwide, independent network of mentored young programmers. Both networks work together to prototype solutions to real world problems.

She has recently been voted onto the Wired 100 list, Tech City 100 and BIMA Hot 100, writes regularly for the Guardian and The Telegraph in the UK and on her own blog and is best known for her campaign: ‘Year 8 is too Late’ (encouraging girls into technology subjects) and relentlessly pushing the potential of open data.
