How She Did It: Understanding Tech As A Non-Technical Founder
Mon 6 June 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 BST
You don't have a tech background, but want to start a tech startup? Don't worry, there are people just like you, who have walked that path!
Blooming Founders is partnering with Udacity to present you an evening of learning, inspiration and networking.
Our speakers all started as non-technical founders, but taught themselves a few new skills in order to lead their tech startups. They will share their experience, give practical advice for starters and reveal a few AHA-moments that helped them understand technical concepts.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Founders and people in startups (women AND men!) who
- Are thinking about starting a tech startup but do not have a technical background
- Want to finally make sense of terms like "front end", "back end", "software architecture", "full-stack developers"
- Want to learn how to lean a tech team, if you are not technical
