Irish Girl Crew 'WOW' the Web Summit

The Irish 'Girl Crew' that began on Tinder have set their sights on Women In Tech.

Elva Carri, the founder of the Dublin Girl Crew, spoke to Independent.ie about the new offshoot of the popular girl group.

The group, which now boasts a few hundred members across the country, began on dating app Tinder.

"It started as a way to make new friends... to go dancing with".

The group quickly ballooned to over 700 members and Elva saw the opportunity to create something even more "supportive" for the ladies.

"It's been such a great support and I thought it would work for anyone coming to the Web Summit alone.. to know people".

The WOW group, which stands for 'Women of WebSummit', have been spending time together at both the Web and Night Summit.

"The girls aren't here to really talk about 'Women in tech' though - they just want to talk about tech!"

The ladies heard about the group on Twitter and then joined the group on Facebook.

"Everyone is welcome".
