On February 12th, PowerToFly hosted an evening of networking and tech talks at San Francisco's swanky Monroe, featuring women tech leaders from two fast-growing startups: Logikcull and Ubiquity6.
After some networking time over wine, beer and light food, both Logikcull and Ubiquity6 presented short tech talks, diving a bit deeper into their missions, products, tech stacks and how they are growing their teams. After their presentations, Logikcull and Ubiquity6 opened the floor for questions. The evening ended with plenty of more opportunities to network while also allowing our attendees to pick up some sweet branded swag from each of our featured companies.
