ARYZE proudly hosts Women in Tech The sequel to the popular Women in Fintech event takes place on the 25th of February at ITU Copenhagen

The event is hosted in cooperation with IT-Branchen and ITU Innovators with the goal of addressing the lack of female representation in the sector and asking why it is so. The event is sold out — however…

Due to a very large demand we have talked to ITU Innovators and we will STREAM the event in a hall RIGHT next to the one that will host the event.

This means that 150 extra people can take part in the networking session in the main foyer — but unfortunately we can only offer them to watch the event via stream at the location.

Find tickets here to join the auditorium with the stream.

The concept is short and lively presentations with no slides to engage with the audience, a lot of dialogue, discussion, and networking. ARYZE will be present to engage with the community and introduce the ARYZE Ambassador Program.
