Are you a woman in tech who aspires to found her own company? Or perhaps you already have.
We'd love to invite you to this, the very first #FemaleTechFounder night!
On 5 February at Federation House, Manchester, a panel of four female tech founders and co-founders will join forces to tell their stories, celebrate their successes and share what they're looking forward to.
What started out as a launch event for Assenty (more on this later) has evolved into a forum for female founders in tech to share their experiences and support one another.
It kicks off with drinks and networking at 6pm, sponsored by the lovely people at ThoughtWorks, followed by a short introduction by Assenty, three awesome lightning talks and a Q&A panel with all four speakers at the end. The event should finish around 8:30pm.
Chi-chi Ekweozor (@thisischichi), Founder and CEO, Assenty
Sophie Walker (@Sophie_COO), COO and Co-Founder, Dsposal.uk
Chloe Barrett (@Digidentistry), Founder, Digidentistry
Kayla Herbert (@kayla__herbert), Founder, Branswer
It is free to attend but registration is required.

Hundreds of hours of coding, customer development, user testing, and more, later, the platform has undergone something of a re-invention!
