TechFoundHer Returns with New Bootcamp aiming to Crack The Code for Female Founders in Tech

The One Day event strives to Bust Tech Jargon, Demystify MVPs, Help Non-techies Hiring Techies and Secure Funding

TechFoundHer, the collective for female founders of tech startups, is calling on all entrepreneurial women to attend its first Bootcamp taking place in the Mansion House on Tuesday, May 2nd, supported by Dublin City Council.

The goal of the TechFoundHer Bootcamp is to champion female founders from non-tech backgrounds who are involved in creating a tech product or platform for their business and to ultimately increase the number of women founding and leading tech. The Bootcamp aims to address the gap in tech industry knowledge and product development experience.

Supporters already signed up are Aine Kerr (formerly of Kinzen), Mary Mac Sweeney, Deputy Head of Economic Development and Enterprise with Dublin City Council and other veteran female tech founders.

The event will facilitate an inclusive, interactive, social space with a mix of participative workshops, Q&A panels and speakers to support non-tech female founders to become more tech product savvy and equip them with industry know-how to move forward with their tech product or service idea.

The organisation is headed up by ‘Women In Tech’ champions Vicky Twomey-Lee, one of Dublin’s prominent coding community builders and Máirin Murray, co-founder of Tech for Good Dublin and Digital Doddle.
