We have recently visited the official start-up event and after party of Nordic.js. Nordic.js is a two-day conference all about Javascript. The aim is to bring the Java community closer together. It’s an event where people get the chance to inspire others and get to be inspired as well. In addition, the conference take place at the beautiful archipelago of Stockholm – idyllic. The after party “Festen – A party for all hackers, designers and creatives in Stockholm” was held at “Trädgården” in Stockholm City. The atmosphere was on top!

However, an interesting and frankly disturbing fact is that out of the 1000 participants of the start-up event, only 6 were women! How can the industry be so unequal in this rather equal society? Is this industry still so unattractive for women?

Anyhow, the after party was really inspiring and exiting and we got to mingle with loads of fascinating entrepreneurs!

    Good observation. ‘ 6 were women! How can the industry be so unequal in this rather equal society? Is this industry still so unattractive for women?’ No industry is attractive , industry does not let woman to stay, unfortunately there is a big discrimination against woman in tech industry.
