Anyone, as long as you have something to teach! We don't believe that VPs and CEOs are the only ones who should have a voice and if you have something to say we want to be where you say it. We welcome first time speakers to apply. Our only prerequisite is that you self-identify as a woman. Non-binary members of the community are also very welcome!
Our talks fall into 5 categories:
- Engineering- Product and Design- Sales and Marketing- Entrepreneurship- Career Advancement
We're interested in hearing from all fields - whether you're in a small tech department in a big company or are an entrepreneur with an early-stage startup with a ton of learnings - we're open to a variety of subjects that touch on tech and innovation. We look for talks that teach something that the audience can implement at work that same day.
Our talks are like a mini conference and are usually held at breakfast time in locations around NYC. You'll speak for 20-30 minutes and then take questions for 10-15 minutes. Specific and actionable topics usually work best.
WILL I GET PAID?
Techfest is volunteer-led and all events are free so we don't have a budget to pay speakers. Our past speakers have found tremendous value in participating in events with our community and have learned a lot themselves!
