Amplify Paris 2019 event hosting, Dataiku Paris HQ, October 15th
What Did We Do?
Last October 15th, among our ikigai initiative (DataikuGorGood), we hosted the AmplifyParis2019, the GirlsinTech startupcompetition for WomenFounders. This competition aims to provide funding, exposure on a global stage, and a community of investors to women entrepreneurs.
As our CTO Clement S. acknowledged everyone during the event introduction that « recruiting girls is difficult” and “this needs to be addressed at all stages, from education to the workplace”. That’s the reason why we are so proud of partnering this event.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the involvement of Julie O. and Marie T. our 2 Dataikers, newly board members of the Girls In Tech Paris chapter.
We also wanted to thanks : Carole O. our VP Marketing who offered her time to be a live judge and Muriel M. our Director of Finance and Administration who participated to the panel » Best practices of going international » during the event.
