What we're about

Powerful technologies like blockchain, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, robotics, and autonomous vehicles open the door for new opportunities, but we often struggle to keep up with them.

I've set up this meetup for us to learn together about which emerging technologies could impact our businesses and our lives in the short and long term.

This group is focused on empowering women in the new world of decentralized innovation and emerging technology with community events, hackathons and educational workshops.

Interested in learning about emerging technologies, and all of the aspects of this new world they are creating then you are in the right place at the right time.

Everyone, and every skill and knowledge level is welcomed.

We started this group to become an excellent resource in this exciting space, to get you started, and keep you moving forward.
