The event is for everyone in the community, not just women, Mustafa said.
“The women in the tech community wouldn’t be where it is without everyone’s support,” she said in an email to Technically Philly.
Community response has been great so far, Mustafa said. She actually stopped accepting sponsorships last week because of overwhelming participation from local companies like Solve Media, Chariot Solutions and Jarv.us Innovations. Mustafa said the extra funds will go toward a GirlDevelopIt scholarship fund to help unemployed women take GDI classes.
Mustafa hopes the party can become an annual event.-30-
