Last night, I got to be "a fly on the wall" at the Ottawa Girl Geek Dinner put on by Kelly Rusk, Veronica Giggey and Melany Gallant. Tara Hunt was the speaker an the entire event was a great success with over 50 women showing up. This was more than a sellout!
For me the best part of the night was meeting so many geek/entrepreneurial women in Ottawa. Tara’s talk was about her story as a female entrepreneur and it was inspiring stuff. I forget sometimes the different challenges there are in business for men and women and it was nice to think about things from a new perspective.
Personally I’d like to find ways to engage more women in the Ottawa startup scene (and in this blog ) and would love for people to leave suggestions in the comments.
As a side note – I came across this great blog last night from one of the women at the dinner, its called GenerationMeh.com - Read it – its great!By Scott Lake
