As I mentioned during my launch at DemoCamp Hamilton, I would not have been able to do it without the assistance of the kind people at Software Hamilton. But why do I mention three organizations in the title? Because they have all played a vital role in getting WITH off the ground.
I went to Startup Drinks and started chatting with a few of the people there. I found that I was one of the few women in the group and I was the only technical one of the group. I talk about this event a little bit in my previous post, but it was at this event that the idea for WITH was born. I launched it at DemoCamp with the full support of Software Hamilton. They have been fully supportive of my efforts and have helped me where ever they can.
I’m writing this not only to thank them for everything they’ve done for me and this organization, (believe me, it’s more than you know), but if you are in the tech sphere in Hamilton, make sure you get out to these events. Trust me, they will support more women in this area and we need it. If they support us, shouldn’t we at least show up? I have included these events on our calendar, plus others that people might be interested in attending.
