What is GGM?

GeekGirl Meetup is a network, for and by, women and girls interested in all things tech, design, and startups. Our ambition is to highlight female role models in the industry, create networks for knowledge exchange, mentoring and sharing ideas – and, of course, to have fun!

We talk regularly at events in order to encourage others to do so. We can also provide a list of other great women within talking in the industry. If you're looking for a great speaker, look no further; get in touch. 

We arrange monthly breakfast meetups and a yearly conference thus creating a platform for all participants to share their knowledge and inspiring stories with other GeekGirls.

How it all started

The network started in Sweden in 2009 by two ladies who were missing female participation at tech conferences. They decided that a tech conference with only female speakers were the way forward and the GeekGirl movement was born.

Today you can find brilliant GeekGirl communities around the world, locations include Sweden, Mexico, Singapore and Denmark. For more information about global GeekGirl activities, please visit GeekGirlMeetup.com.
