Help Lesbians Who Tech Summit go to New York
Just over a year ago, we started doing Lesbians Who Tech happy hours, to bring together queer women across the tech industry. It quickly grew to over 3,000 people in 14 cities worldwide.
As the next step, we hosted the Lesbians Who Tech Summit in San Francisco, a few weeks ago. It was a completely amazing event, with 800 queer women, incredible speakers, a hackathon for social good, and weekend events like a bike ride and brunch.
Even though about 25% of our attendees came in from out of town, we know San Francisco is still pretty far.
So many people said, “It sounds amazing – you should bring it to New York!” And that’s what we’re going to do, with your help.
To make it happen, we have to pre-sell 150 tickets, which shows that you all really want the Summit to happen. And we have just 5 days to do it because we don’t want to lose the venue we have on hold!
Once we pre-sell 150 tickets, we’ll begin planning this amazing weekend.
Support the campaign by purchasing your early access ticket, spreading the word and making the New York Summit a reality!
