Join us Jan 29-Feb 2- 2018 for the inaugural Women in Tech Regatta Week.

The Regatta is a curated collection of events, workshops and conversations designed to connect women in tech to mentors, peers, resources and to the power of community. We will dwell in the realm of what’s possible, rather than simply what is.

Sessions are grouped thematically and each session will be hosted at one of five ports. Attend all or create a personalized itinerary aligned to your specific interests, by checking off the sessions below.

The explosive growth of Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies has fostered a new marketplace and created new foundations and trends for our global economic and social systems. While these tech platforms remain largely cryptic concepts for most people, they are arguably becoming mainstream. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are experiencing increasing uptake from regular businesses including Whole Food and Expedia, and Blockchain is being piloted by dozens of governments. Join our discussion to learn about where are we heading with these platforms and what you can do to prepare yourself to use them in your day to day. Will they stick around to become mainstream, remain a high-risk 'fad' for a niche market, or fade away as quickly as they emerged? Should the average person even care? Educate yourself.
