TechTonic – a diverse network for aspirational women who deliver!
We think there is a gap in the support networks of Oxfordshire that would address the lack of support for entrepreneurial and aspirational women in the technology sector. Not just a forum or a network that would offer mentoring or social media connections, but a platform that would bring like minded people together with common interests and experiences both virtually and physically. The aim would be to let the network grow organically offering advice and mentoring where a connection is found, while at the same time holding regular meetings with interesting speakers. While TechTonic is aimed at the women of Oxfordshire, speakers and even connections will include both men and women to ensure a broad spectrum of experiences and awareness is offered.
TechTonic has been developed by the joint efforts of Venturefest Oxford, Penningtons Manches, James Cowper Kreston, Oxford University Innovation, the Innovation Forum, as well as serial entrepreneurs Nicky chambers, Riham Satti (Mevitae) and Joy Foster (TechPixies).
