What originally started as a forum (NYTechWomen) for women who were active and passionate about technology, quickly became so much more. Since May 2011, NYTechWomen has been changing the tech environment for women in NYC. In March 2013, it became incredibly clear that the environment needed to change for women outside of NYC as well, and Bella Minds was born. Publicly launching on October 17th with a crowdfunding campaign, 52 days later, after successfully raising $28,692 from 263 backers, we hit the road with our tried and tested curriculum.
We’re very proud of the wonderful community we have all built together, first supporting New York women in technology, and now supporting all women interested in technology.
There are now thousands of community members, but our elbows-down approach hasn't changed one bit. We're still having regular NYC-based events, continuing in the NYTechWomen tradition, but we've added many, many more programs as well. So, be sure to join us at our next event, and contact us if you are interested in helping us close the digital divide for even more women, taking the power of technology to every woman who wants it.
