JOIN over 400+ WOMEN in TECH and WOMEN-LED STARTUPS in TAIPEIon SATURDAY, APRIL 20, from 9am to 6pm for the very 1st TECH(K)NOW Day in Taipei.
TECH(K)NOW Day started in London back in early 2017 and happens there twice a year. We are very happy to organize one here in Taipei!
TECH(K)NOW DAY has been organised to provide a place and venue for anyone who identifies as a woman to go and learn new tech skills (see details below). This is in keeping with the past few years' International Women's Day themes - #BeBoldforChange #PressforProgress #BalanceforBetter
Tea/Coffee/Pastries/Biscuits will be served for Breakfast (8-9am). Lunch will also be avalable as well as Tea/Coffee/Biscuits for the afternoon tea break.
HOW WAS IT THE LAST FEW YEARS in LONDON?
Below is a feedback from one of the attendees at the March 2017 event. We love the way she perfectly summarized what happened on the day! From 400+ attendees, we have been growing and are looking to welcome 1800+ women in tech (or women wanting to get into tech) to the event. Make sure you don't miss out!
