Let’s meet! – Geek Girls Carrots Seattle
Join us October 22nd, @IMS Health (formerly Appature)(1633 Westlake Ave. N., Suite 400, Seattle, WA 98109), 6:30pm for a special meetup! You will meet Katrina Hess, COO and Design Director of Siren and learn how to create a “Hello World” app in multiple platforms from Diana Pham, founder of DINOHULK.
If you aren’t already aware, Geek Girls Carrots hosts a special event every month where you can listen to guest speakers, network, and even pitch your burgeoning business ideas.
Expand your network, and maybe even your net worth.
Past speakers have included financiers turned entrepreneurs; artists who went on to work for Google; and foodies turned CEOs. Listen to them share their stories, and then take advantage of our networking time to speak to them further.
Got a big idea? Pitch it in a minute, and then get feedback. Practice both your speaking and business skills, and get valuable feedback which could help you turn your new dream into a reality.
This month’s guest speakers include:
Diana Pham, founder of DINOHULK—a company which produces digital storybooks for children of all ages. Diana also teaches programming, robotics, and their associated languages to children and adults.
Katrina Hess, COO and Design Director of Siren—a refined dating app, which emphasizes digital flirting, and puts women in the driver’s seat. The app was designed to move past flat questionnaires, by creating an interface which reveals the story and personality of an individual through unique and playful questions.
