We want to talk about moving careers from corporate world into IT entrepreneurship. Just being in the middle of it ourselves we can share our learnings and experiences. We also believe that women are stronger when they are together, so will talk about what role having a partner plays for us. Lastly, we will share our thoughts on how to start (up) as women.
