#FemaleTechFounder Night – Full lineup of speakers confirmed!

Yesterday we announced the very first #FemaleTechFounder Night taking place on Tuesday 5 February and asked for nominations for speakers.

Today, we’re thrilled to be able to confirm the final speaker lineup.

We are still a bit taken aback by the response, to be honest! Thank you to everyone who got in touch, retweeted the call for speakers and nominated speakers via Facebook, LinkedIn and Slack. Amazing! It really does seem like there is a great deal of interest in a forum like this for female product makers in the tech space!

Join us at Federation House, Manchester next month to celebrate the launch of Assenty and hear these inspiring tech founders and co-founders tell their stories, celebrate recent successes and share what they’re looking forward to.

The event, sponsored by the lovely people at ThoughtWorks, kicks off with drinks and networking at 6pm, followed by a short introduction by Assenty, three awesome lightning talks and a Q&A panel with all four speakers at the end. It should finish around 8:30pm.

Hundreds of hours of coding, customer development, user testing, and more, later, the platform has undergone something of a re-invention!
