Event Details

JOIN over 1800+ WOMEN in TECH and WOMEN-LED STARTUPS on SATURDAY, MARCH 9, from 9am to 5pm for a special event to celebrate International Women’s Day!   Due to popular demand we are holding the 5th TECH(K)NOW Day on a Saturday, so more of you can attend.

TECH(K)NOW DAY has been organised to provide a place and venue for anyone who identifies as a woman to go and learn new tech skills (see details below).   This is in keeping with the past few years’ International Women’s Day themes – #BeBoldforChange #PressforProgress #BalanceforBetter

Also, if you are a woman founder or woman co-founder of a startup, you can apply for a free exhibition space here >> http://www.bit.ly/techknowdayspace.  If you are at a stage where you are looking to form a startup – then attend and get access to startup advice from some of the companies and organisations that will be present.

Tea/Coffee/Pastries/Biscuits will be served for Breakfast (8-9am).  Lunch will also be avalable as well as Tea/Coffee/Biscuits for the afternoon tea break.


If you do not fit the profile of the target attendees for this International Women’s Day event, will you be an ally and help us spread the word about this event, by forwarding a link to this page to someone in your organisation or your circle of friends/influence who might benefit from attending?   (Or if you do fit the profile but can not make it on the day and know someone who might be interested in attending, please pass the link on.)   Thank you very much!   Here’s the link to share >> http://www.techknowday.com.


Below is a feedback from one of the attendees at the March 2017 event.  We love the way she perfectly summarised what happened on the day!   From 400+ attendees, we have been growing and are looking to welcome 1800+ women in tech (or women wanting to get into tech) to the event.  Make sure you don’t miss out!
