Giving girls the power to be whoever they want in life

Biba provides the skills, space and inspiration for girls and women to become awesome developers and future leaders.

About Biba

BIBA is a social enterprise run by girls, for girls. We know that there is a shortage of people in the tech industry, especially girls, and we want to make a change to address this issue. Technology is advancing at a rate that the demand for software engineers, data scientists, game developers and more roles, are increasingly getting higher and higher.

BIBA has been founded by a team led by Siddhi Trivedi who are passionate champions of tech with a vision of bringing the best tech companies, educators and thought leaders together to enable skills transfer between tech experts and young girls.

For girls

The main focus for BIBA is to begin the process of bridging the gender gap of women in tech. We want to nurture and inspire girls from their early stage of schooling to foster a passion for a career in tech in order to meet the needs of the future growth of our economy.

We aim to bridge the gap between the number of women studying computer science at university, to the number of women in tech roles. With BIBA we want to achieve 50:50 (male to female ratio) by 2050.

We work with young girls aged 16 to 25 who want to go into a STEM career in the future, and those who want to work with existing tech companies to develop and refine their skills.
