We are a Digital Female Leader!

An evening full of women power! On the 1st of December the women’s magazine Myself and the career network Women in Digital presented the Digital Female Leader Award for the second time. It is a prize for women who have made particularly valuable contributions to the german digital economy and blackbee was honoured as well!
Our founder and CTO Dr. Hanna Köpcke was awarded in the IT / Tech category. She is a distinguished expert in object matching, machine learning and data mining and has developed, among others, the matching process which is used by blackbee.

The award ceremony was held on the 1st of December in Berlin at Microsoft and attended by many great women from various sectors in the digital economy who all celebrated the fact that more and more high-level positions are now held by women. And we also had a good reason to set the champagne corks popping: Dr. Hanna Köpcke was nominated in the IT / Tech category and eventually she won through against 43 impressive competitors who work, among others, in management positions at Zalando or Siemens.

We would like to congratulate Dr. Hanna Köpcke for winning the Award. It was an honour to be the part of the event and amazing evening.
