GeekGirlMeetup at Oxford University

Geek Girl Meetup is holding its first ever University showcase un-conference at Oxford University on February 17th, between 13.00 and 18.00 at the Founders Room in the Said Business School. The afternoon will revolve around empowering more female students that are interested in technology and entrepreneurship. There will be 8 distinguished female entrepreneurs and technologists that will speak about what it is like to found a company, and go through a product lifecycle (idea, concept, design, development, marketing, financing, and growth). There will also be discussions allowing every participant to share their knowledge with others and ask questions.
