We just spent two days at Arch Summit in Luxembourg and had a chance to participate in the Female Empowerment category.
We didn't win in the competition. But we didn't get upset, because what we won is more precious: many new supporters, potential partners and loads of smiles. We didn't have a minute to take a seat at our booth, because there were people and people coming to us to learn more about Coding Girls activities and opportunities.
Facts & Figures:
Coding Girls (CG) gave away:
150+ Business Cards
400+ Women In Tech CG Stickers
200+ CG Flyers
200 CG Mini Chocolate
25 CG Bags

There's a saying: "Sometimes we win. Sometimes we learn." Actually, for us it's a bit different. Sometimes you win. But you always learn. What we learnt is that no matter you win or not, the main challenge is about trying and being brave to introduce your startup to the world.
Such a huge interest in our booth; we even didn't have time to tweet Come to say "Hi!" to #CodingGirls at @arch_summit #FemaleEmpowerment #archsummit #Luxembourg @Luxexpo_The_Box @DigiLuxembourg @TomorrowStreet pic.twitter.com/JsBtzlG898— Coding Girls (@CodingGirlsCom) May 3, 2018
