#BUILTBYGIRLS Hashtag: Tech of Transportation @ Uber 

Open to all high school and college students

It’s time for another Hashtag! This event series offers an inside look at how the hottest tech companies create the powerful products we love. We’ve discussed everything from the Tech of Video @ Buzzfeed to the Tech of Love + Communication @ OkCupid, and now it’s time to add some tech of transportation into the mix.

This month we’re going to explore the technology behind one of our favorite apps that’s creating possibilities for riders, drivers, and cities. We’re eager to know what goes on behind the wheels at the company that takes team #BUILTBYGIRLS from the office to TechCrunch Disrupt, and that brings Thai food directly to us (miracles do happen…thanks UberEats).

For that reason, we’ll be going to Uber, a platform that seamlessly connects drivers to riders, and an app that is evolving the way the world moves.

WAIT LIST: If you’re not able to get a spot, please email danielle.letayf@teamaol.com to be put on the wait list.


We have been selling out of spots for The Hashtag super quickly (which is a great thing!), but want to make sure as many people as possible get a chance to experience these events. That means that if you’re registering, we expect you to come and if you’re unable to attend (which totally happens), please let us know at least 2 days in advance so we can fill your spot.

We will be taking attendance and keeping track of no-shows (people who register and don’t show up without telling us) for each event, and you will only be allowed 2 no-shows before we revoke your invitations going forward. Thanks for understanding :)

Can’t wait! See you there.
