Hello Seattle Girl Geeks!
Great news — Capital One ShareBuilder is hosting our 19th Girl Geek Event on Thursday, May 9, 6–8 p.m.
This Girl Geek Event will focus on how ShareBuilder makes investing and saving for retirement straightforward and affordable. And they’ve come up with some pretty innovative ways to do it, including a customizable iPad® app that they built from the ground up. Plus, ShareBuilder’s website ranked #1 in design and usability among online brokerages in 2011 by Corporate Insight*.
So if you’ve ever felt intimidated by investing or have ever wondered how “investing” and “tech innovation” could go together in the same sentence, sign up for an evening of food, drinks, interactive demos and friendly conversation.
The event will be held in ShareBuilder’s offices, located in Pioneer Square’s historic Seattle Hardware Company building. Want to join us? Register now on Eventbrite and mark your calendar.
When: Thursday, May 09, 2013

The Seattle Holiday Girl Geek Dinner was a great success. We saw a lot of familiar faces from previous events, and lots of new faces too! We hope everyone had as much fun as we did.
We’d like to give a big thank you to the Microsoft Entertainment and Devices division for their sponsorship. An especially big thanks to Dina and Megan, who made sure everything ran smoothly and put on a great evening for all who attended. Congratulations to the winner of the raffle prize, an Xbox!
Also thanks to Margaret Cobb. We really enjoyed your presentation on how your team took on marketing the Xbox to women. The demo of Lips at the end really got everybody excited.
We will be announcing the details for our January Dinner very shortly, so be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed in your favorite RSS Reader, or via Email!
