The women are coming – future female is really a new network for geek women – arcticstartup

Future Female is really a new Finnish network for likeminded ladies who work, use or are curious about technology, business and all sorts of-things-digital. For me personally that reads geek women loud and obvious. It’s great to determine geek girl systems appearing within the Nordic and Baltic scenes. Especially given the number of gifted ladies there’s available.

Way back when Annikki Laine requested me whether I understood any meet-ups or systems for ladies that operated abroad that they could make an appointment with, because she was considering establishing one out of Finland. Yesterday I acquired an e-mail from Annikki saying these were ready to go. Annikki and 2 other ladies, namely Krista Järvinen and Hanna Manninen, had founded Future Female . Annikki also explained that Future Female is borrowing from SIME, TEDex, ArcticStartup, GeekGirl in Norway, FIPnetwork within the Netherlands and subsequently Lady searching to have an ideal mix for that Finnish scene.

Future Female is intending to organize meet-ups, workshops, keynotes, and make community for ladies who are curious about web 2 . 0. (Annikki apologized while using term and thus will i), where they are able to found mentors, peers, couches along with other women who wish to not only talk, but additionally make stuff. Types of possible get-togethers that Annikki provided incorporate a weekend codecamp, iPad apps workshop or perhaps a gathering around how-to-commerzialize-a-product along with other similar occasions.

The 3 ladies desired to highlight that it is not just for individuals fluent in tech, but in addition for UX designers, Art Company directors, Copy Authors, Communication professionals, PR peeps and individuals employed in internet marketing and interaction design. The spirit of FF is extremely startup like, nevertheless its available to anybody who’s thinking about trying out awesome concepts and projects, whether to setup a company or simply to create a awesome product. To highlight the purpose Annikki herself isn’t an entrepreneur, but employed by Fruugo, a Finnish e-commerce ‘startup’.

I’m excited to determine this type of network being placed in Finland but there is a big interest in it. These greater than a couple of gifted youthful ladies kicking mens ass within the Finnish tech scene and there’s room for additional. I really hope FF will go to the wonderful Geek Women in Norway and Geek Women can come to go to Finland. We want both of you!

Should you got interested, you are able to join the network and visit more on your own. The very first Future Female event happens on Wednesday sixth October 2010 at 6pm at Café Bar Lounge Soffa in Helsinki. Read more here.
