Sociomantic Partners Again with Geek Girls Carrots for Hackathon and Meet-up

GGC and Sociomantic bring together another two awesome events in Berlin

Geek Girls Carrots (GGC) are an international group dedicated to supporting women (and non-male) developers in tech, with whom we’ve already partnered in the past. As a company who has diversity so ingrained in its culture, the partnership made sense from the get-go: which is why we partnered with them once again this October for a Travel and Tech Hackathon, and also this November, for a meet-up on what Being a Woman in Tech in South Africa means, with Robyn Farah sharing her story.

The hackathon took place at Thoughtworks Berlin for an entire weekend of hacking and coding, going well into the night. Groups were given one task: to come up with travel tech solutions to make travelling even easier. Approximately 50 people from all genders joined us, for an event organized in partnership with GGC together with Young Targets and Sociomantic. Sponsorships came from Lufthansa Systems, SAP, Axel Springer and Futurice. Sociomantic also sponsored the performing act, Marie Chain, who delighted the attendees with her soothing voice.

Three weeks later, we partnered again to share the story of Robyn Farrah, CEO of KATO, a company which thrives on bringing people together to share ideas, inventions and talk about tech. The meet-up took place at Space-Shack, and Sociomantic Labs helped with logistic set-up and brought on-board Fritz Kola to support with drinks. Around twenty attendees were there for more than an hour of storytelling and networking.

Thanks to everyone who joined, and hope to see you soon!
