LinkedIn relied on a combination of data, editorial insights and Influencer ideas to forge the list.

Earlier this year, Clara was named one of the Bay Area’s Most Influential Women by the San Francisco Business Times and, last month, one of the most influential women in tech by Hot Topics alongside Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, Leah Busque of TaskRabbit and Susan Wojcicki of YouTube.
