Our aim is to provide a platform where we inspire and develop ladies in technology through collaboration, networking, training, mentorship and possibly funding through a network of partners to help women play a stronger role in the growing Technology startup scene in Nigeria and Africa.
Our aim is to make 2013 the year of the Nigerian Girl Geek.
We hope to increase the number and quality of women in technology.
Sterling examples of women trailblazers abound with tech amazons in the Nigerian tech space in the mould of personalities like Funke Opeke (CEO, MainOne Cable Company), Juliet Ehimuan (Country Manager, Google Nigeria), Lynda Saint-Nwafor (CTO, MTN Nigeria), Florence Seriki, (MD/CEO Omatek Venture) and even Omobola Johnson (Hon. Minister of Information Technology).
We want to create a synergy to ensure there is a steady pipeline of young women in influential roles as the startup ecosystem opens up more in the coming years.
The first-of-many Ladies- in-Tech event was held on Friday 14th December 2012 at Co-Creation Hub and had no less than 30 women in attendance.
