EIT Digital has many amazing talents as well as success stories, and we are very pleased to share with you the latest great news. Recently, two of our EIT Digital Alumni community members have received the Nordic Women in Tech Awards and we couldn’t be prouder!
In the previous news we shared the story of Dipika and this time we’d like to introduce Dora Palfi, who was awarded the “Women in Tech advocate of the year”.
Dora studied Human Computer Interaction and Design at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, and at TU Berlin, Germany. Currently located in Sweden, she is a co-founder and CEO of imagiLabs, and also one of the founders of the Women@EIT community, which brings together women students and alumni of EIT. Dora was also recently named in the prestigious Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe 2021 list.
"As the co-founder and CEO of imagiLabs I am working to make creating and playing with code fun and relevant for 8-13 year old girls. The imagiCharm, a programmable companion (think Tamagotchi for the TikTok generation) is a small gaming device that can be customised through coding in the imagiLabs app."
Dora’s award “Women in Tech advocate of the year” is awarded to leaders in business and visionaries of technology who have made a difference in their community and have gone out of their way to support the cause of attracting more women in the tech industry.
Congratulations to Dora on her well-deserved success!
Nordic Women in Tech Awards is an initiative by WonderCoders to create role models and celebrate the progress of getting more women interested in tech. Their goal is to see women’s hard work and success being recognized more broadly.
