Isa, the young talented singer from Swedish Melodifestivalen gives an exclusive performance at Women in Tec 2015 and shows her support for the cause. Isa performed at WIT2014 and has since last year become a well-known name in the Swedish music industry.
– I know how important tech is, no matter what you work with, especially in my field – music. This is also why it’s so important that more women knows that you can work with tech in many different areas, and that is great fun, says Isa Tengblad.
Isa will be on stage at 16.00 on Friday.
