Let’s empower women in tech!

We can count on one hand the things we do without using technology nowadays. Remember when you had to get off the couch to get the remote? That was annoying. How great are Alexa and Google home, eh?

Life is changing fast and technology is keeping up to make our lives easier every day. Behind all these fancy devices that we get to enjoy, there are tech teams coding cool stuff. But...

Women only make up 25% of computing roles. It’s time to act! 💪

It’s important to educate ourselves on the matter. It’s important to read up, follow women leaders in tech, and always speak up for women’s rights - in tech and everywhere else.

But it’s also time to be part of the change. You know what they say...if you want it done, better do it yourself.

We’ve partnered with Ironhack to help women change careers and join one of Ironhack’s intense bootcamps 💻

We think that finances nor the status quo should keep you away from your dreams. Both bunq and Ironhack were born to challenge what’s expected and to build something better. That’s why it’s important for us to make sure that women in tech is the new normal. Let’s break this cycle that’s been going on for way too long, and bring fresh new energy with awesome women that can kick some ass!

If you’re up for the challenge, we’ll help cover the finances.

Here’s how it works! 🙌
