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 female 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

GeekGirl Meetup was founded in Sweden in 2008 by Heidi Harman and Andie Nordgren. In London it was set up in 2011 by Heidi Harman, Josefine Hedlund and Emily Green.  Between 2013-2015 the London core team has been Robyn Exton, Josefine Hedlund and Magdalena Kron and in 2015 they were joined by Cathy White, Mergime Raci and Caylee Farndon-Taylor.

Networks exist in four Swedish cities as well as in Denmark, Mexico, Honduras, Hong Kong, Singapore and San Francisco. We hope that you are as excited about this as we are.
