Witty Careers at Microsoft
On Saturday 30th June 2018, we hosted an insight into Technology event for women at the Microsoft Reactor in London. The day was made up of a mix of Tech Talks, a fun workshop and an interactive panel session. We were joined by guests from our partners, Microsoft and The Bakery Innovation Programme. Here is what we covered:
3 TED-style Tech talks: What is Internet of Things?, The Future of Technology and Women in Entrepreneurship
A mobile app prototyping workshop along with a pitch and demo
A Careers at Microsoft panel session
As part of our app design workshop, our guests formed mini-startups for the day creating their own app prototypes. Here are some of the ideas by our groups:
Beauty Finder: an app that helps you find the right makeup for your skin type and skin tone
Stitch n Fix: an on demand tailor service that takes care of your last minute wardrobe malfunctions
Freshman 15: an app to take care of your mental and physical health throughout university
Match Beauty: an app that matches you with makeup based on your brand preferences and syncs to makeup shops online so you can purchase matched makeup instantly
Find your fashion: an app to help you find cheaper versions of clothes you love
Busy Body: an event planner and scheduler for you and your friends
