Five girls with a hidden talent for computer coding take on the male-dominated digital world. Are they up to the challenge of inventing a start-up from scratch in just five days?
Radio 1's Alice Levine takes five girls who can take selfies and finds out if they can take on and take over the male-dominated digital world.
Half of all gamers are women - but only 4 per cent code them. Only seven of the richest 100 tech billionaires are women.
Alice Levine is outraged! So she's pushing East End Ellie, ditzy art student Daisy, science boffin Neelam, fashion grad Tolani and wannabe millionaire Arooj into the testosterone-fuelled world of tech.
In episode one, to prove the world of tech isn't just pizza-munching teenage boys and male masters of the machine universe, our girls take a whirl around London's silicon roundabout in the company of the most powerful women in tech. Fashion, gaming, apps - and digital slap! - the girls learn that making millions in the digital world isn't just about learning ones and zeroes, it's following your passion. And the cash will follow.
But are they up to the challenge of inventing a start-up from scratch in just five days? It's an emotional ride... and it's not just the code that'll crack.
