★ LOVE TO THE FRONT - Germany's first LGBTI Hackathon! ★
Hosted by Erasys (the company behind PlanetRomeo)
Organised by UNICORNS IN TECH (The Global LGBTI Tech community)

March 31 + April 1, Berlin

Do you care strongly about a specific challenge that LGBTI communities face? Parental rights, finding a partner, equal marriage, discrimination, hate crimes? Do you have any ideas how to solve those challenges using technology?

Disrupt the tech industry and fill it up with unicorny innovations at the first LGBTI Hackathon in Germany! Create your own hackathon group or join other groups and make our world a little bit better. Erasys and UNICORNS IN TECH will NOT have any ownership over your idea. Instead, we will promote your project and connect you with potential funders or investors.

This hackathon is a great mutual learning experience: you will get experience from your groups' comrades and mentors and you will learn by doing in a fun atmosphere with smart people like yourself.

■ Schedule ■
Friday
7:00 pm - Food/drinks, mingling
7:30 pm - Welcome talk by UNICORNS IN TECH and Erasys: hackathon procedure and rules, Q&A
8:00 pm - Short group presentations, joining the groups

We are looking for all geek and creative types. You do not have to be a programmer to participate. We welcome applications from anyone. Please, apply here (https://goo.gl/forms/zSC8MpwKhlQ1pMrj2) until March 26.

We will send out invitations after a careful review by UNICORNS IN TECH and Erasys. People, who need to travel to Berlin, will get their invitations earlier, so you can plan your trip.

The participation is free, but there is no budget for travel or accommodation costs. There will be, however, tons of drinks and food throughout the day and perks like special free tickets for #UNIT2017 (The Global LGBTI Tech & Science Conference), free Plus membership at PlanetRomeo, trophies and more prizes. Most important: You will be a part of the FIRST LGBT hackathon in Germany :)

Dream Big ♥

Hi our dearest Tech Unicorns,

we want to expand the UNICORNS IN TECH network around the whole world. UNICORNS IN TECH is right now the largest community for tech LGBTI in Europe with a fast growing number of members, but mainly active in Germany/Berlin. We believe that this community has the potential to become a global network and help LGBTI tech people all over the world to connect, to exchange ideas and opinions, network with tech unicorns, find great job opportunities in proud companies, create new business opportunities, and maybe find the perfect match - hey, why not? Our main goal: connecting all LGBTI tech unicorns around the World #dreambig :)

Therefore, we are inviting around 15 (tech) influencers to a personal meeting with Danik (Project Manager at Unicorns in Tech) and Stuart (Founder of Unicorns in Tech) at our unicorns HQ in Berlin in January to share our visions, plans and strategy.

If you are an investor, CEO, mulitplicator, company sponsor etc. (someone with great unicorn powers) and would like to hear & maybe support our future plans, please fill out this form:
https://goo.gl/forms/jZf90TptGV9i9iep2

We reply within two weeks whether we can invite you.

If you can’t join the meeting in January but would like to hear & maybe support us let us know if you are in Berlin.

If you can't „invest“ in UNICORNS IN TECH but still want to help, please get us connected to the right people and share this email with them.

Have a great week,

Stuart & Danik
