Event description

Description

In partnership with Active Profile.

Meet the pioneers behind some of the brightest tech and digital companies in Liverpool.

What does it take to set-up and run a successful startup? Meet four people who have done just that.

Come along to May’s Women in Tech Meetup to hear stories of success, how to handle business challenges (even failures) and fresh advice to inspire both new and established leaders.

As usual, there’ll be plenty of time for networking with a roomful of movers and shakers from the city’s digital and tech scene.

Complimentary drinks and snacks are provided.

Due to venue capacity there are limited tickets available, so don't miss out.
