Women-In-Tech Session: developing & growing tech products, together

EMERGE is all about Tech and Growth. But both of these terms wouldn’t mean a thing without those who work their asses on them. Especially women, who still have to prove their ambitions in innovative industries (as a team of mostly young women, we know it well).

So, within the Women in Tech session at EMERGE we’ll welcome female experts to listen to their insights on the current trends in developing smart services as well as their stories of paving their way into tech business.

How to build a startup for startups
ALEKSEY BIRUYKOV (RU), CEO, Andata
ALEKSEY MAYSTRENKO (RU), CEO, Platform Sales Chain
VALERY SHARIPOV (RU), CEO, Malivar

There are online products that help startups grow and thrive. What was the motivation to build products as ProductHunt, F6S, Sber Unity? What are their critical features and value for clients, who are mostly startup founders? How to improve constantly? Startups will share the main headaches of businesses that need to be solved with new products and explain how creating a product for a startup differs from creating a product for a corporation.

Algorithms that are smarter than humans – what's the future for both?
TIMO MERTENS (US), Head of ML & NLP Products, Grammarly
OLES PETRIV (UA), CTO & Co-founder, Reface

Machines can check your spelling. They can advise you on the tone of voice in your email. They can create videos with creatures that don’t even exist. And they can make you dance like Shakira (well, at least it will look so). Scary? Or exciting? ML wizards from the hottest startups in the field will describe how they imagine the future of humans’ and machines’ coliving.
