First of all, on behalf of the Girls in Tech London team, I’d like to thank everyone who turned up and helped to make our launch event on Friday such a success.
We had some fabulous speakers and moderators, who shared their thoughts on everything from startup funding to security to how to network effectively at conferences. And of course, none of this would have been possible without our incredible sponsors and partners, including Google, Criteo, Eventbrite, London First and The Next Women.
Oh. And we’ll be posting more pictures shortly. 🙂
The 100 top women in tech in Europe.
For anyone who missed it, we also released our GIT EURO 100 list featuring some of the top women in tech in Europe. We received over 500 nominations from across Europe and would have loved to include everyone on the list. Clearly 100 just isn’t enough and we look forward to including more incredible women next year.
You can see this year’s selection, which was featured in TechCrunch, The Next Web and The Next Women – as well as publications from Israel (here and here), Italy, Greece, Russia and Turkey (here, here and here). If you’ve been selected and no publication from your country has published anything yet, be sure to let us know.
Some people have questioned why such a list is necessary. If you’re one of those people wondering why we even bother, be sure to check out Natasha Saxberg’s thoughts on why this list matters!
Now that our big launch event is over, you may be wondering what’s next! Well, we’ll be hosting regular events – evening panels/speakers and cocktails! – with more incredible women speakers.
