Can you relate to any of these Chic Geeks? Maybe you’re a little of this and a little of that – a design student, a gentleman programmer, or even a mom who wants to start a business… the point is, you don’t need to be a techie to qualify but if you are curious, brave, and want to support others when it comes to technology and entrepreneurship, Geeky Summit is right for you.
And remember, we welcome ALL genders and encourage the participation of diverse identities traditionally underrepresented in technology.
Maybe you’re a graphic designer, web UX guru, illustrator, or traditional artist. Whether you’re a freelancer or in-house creative, you’re determined not to become obsolete in this ever-changing landscape of digital media and social communication modes. Stay atop of tech trends and meet more of your kind.

You own or are involved in the running of a business and see technology as a competitive advantage. Whether you want to meet other entrepreneurs and business-savvy women, or technically talented people who can do it for you, you want to be actively involved and grow your business.
Hunting down code bugs, getting ideas to work, and discovering new technologies gets you out of bed in the morning. Because the programming industry is disproportionately male-dominated, you want to see more women getting into computer science to offer fresh perspectives, and in turn, drive innovation.
The Gentlemen Geek
That’s right! Chic Geek isn’t just for women – we encourage ANYONE who supports diversity in tech and entrepreneurship to attend our events! Change starts with understanding potential and you are an advocate of building, supporting, and sharing resources to promote growth and diversity in industry.
You’re a student - of school or life - and excited about what lies ahead. Whether you’re starting a new journey, or almost at the finish line, you want to surround yourself with people who can support your success. This is your time to be a sponge and you’re going to make the most of it!

Chic Geek exists because we want to see more women as makers, builders and creators, leveraging technology to change the world. When we started 4-years ago, there weren't enough supports for women who were interested in exploring technology and entrepreneurship, so we launched 3 programs to help build digital literacy and connect our members:
