We’ve partnered with Superlinked
A better way to network with members of the community
👋🏾 Salaam, we are Somalis in Tech and welcome to our monthly newsletter. Each month we’ll bring you the latest from the community, tech news and a community Q&A.
Somalis in Tech x Superlinked
Looking to get better connected with Somali Tech members? Look no further!
We’re offering our members yet another way to get to know each other, network and build lasting relationships. Every week, we’ll introduce individual members to a brand-new connection from within the Somali Tech community.
We’re piloting the Superlinked matching application. It applies all the power of a unique AI engine to select someone who matches your networking goals – and then we’ll set up a 30-minute video call between you. In this early stage of this pilot, call times are fixed and take place on Wednesday’s 7PM GMT.
All you need to do is confirm your availability!
So far it’s been a positive experience for those that were connected with one of our members telling us ‘it was a smooth process, the event got saved in my calendar and had a reminder email sent just before which was good.’

Somalis in Tech + In-Person Meetups
To mark the end of another calendar year, we wanted to bring you our first in-person event of the year.
It’s been over a year now since SiT held our first event, but there’s only so much Zoom we can all take... So we figured it’s time to hold our first in-person event.🎉 We’ve made so many virtual connections around the world, but we hope this event will be a chance to connect with your local SiT community.
One will be in London and the other in Toronto!
Let's get together for ⚡️Lightning Talks, networking and drinks 🥤/ snacks 🍫
19:00 - 📣 Opening keynote and introduction by SiT team
19:20 - ⚡️Lightning Talks
19:50 - 🎰 Icebreaker/Networking/Bingo
20:20 - 📸 Closing remarks and group photo
If you can make it to the London meetup, sign up here. 🇬🇧
If you can make it to the Toronto meetup, sign up here. 🇨🇦
For those not near either city, don’t worry! We’re just starting out and we may be coming to a city near you in the not too distant future. To accommodate those unable to attend IRL and allow them a chance to participate, we’re thinking about making this a hybrid event, so be sure to keep an eye out on Slack for updates.
