We want the Girl Geek events to be free for everyone, exciting and entertaining. The only way to do this is to get support and sponsorship.
Our main sponsors for 2016/17 are SSR and AutoTrader:
Founded in 1980 as Spirit Studios, which hosted many local music legends including The Smiths and The Stone Roses, SSR was formed in 1984 – in response to an increasing demand for professionally trained sound engineers within the music industry.
Today SSR offers degree courses, summer schools and one-to-one tuition in a range of subjects – not just sound recording but also live production and DJing, film production, computer games development and 3D movie making. They were awarded an MEN Business of the Year award in 2009, and in 2011 opened SSR London and SSR Jakarta.
Auto Trader is the UK’s number one motoring digital marketplace with over 11 million monthly unique users, carrying out over 140 million searches on more than 400,000 new and used vehicles. Over 3.5 million people access Auto Trader via their mobile devices every month through the mobile optimised site and apps.
Their market leading products and solutions mean that they have relationships with over 12,500 dealers in the UK. All of this adds up to an exciting tech company, with a focus on discovering new things, building on great relationships and having fun along the way.
