During the COVID-19 pandemic, the technology industry was one of the fastest-growing areas as Amazon, Netflix, Microsoft, and Zoom achieved record profits as many employees worked from home. As the economy re-opens, these companies are poised to continue their growth with work-from-home becoming the norm.

As an outsider, watching the tech sector grow may seem like a party that you're left out of, especially if you notice how much workers make. Worse yet, it might appear that the only jobs available are for software engineers, product managers, and other types of technical talent.

Thankfully, that's NOT true.

Not all jobs in the tech sector need developers and data scientists. If you're a non-technical professional who wants to transition into the lucrative tech industry, join this session with Sophia Matveeva, founder of Tech for Non-Techies, an academic guest lecturer, and startup advisor. You will learn:

  • Five case studies of successful career transitions: the founder, the product manager, the investor, and more
  • Key tech concepts you need to know to have a successful career in tech
  • Practical steps to take today to transform your career


Sophia Matveeva is the founder of Tech For Non-Techies, a learning community and media company. Sophia has contributed to the Financial Times, The Guardian, and Forbes on entrepreneurship and technology, and hosts the top-rated Tech for Non-Techies podcast.

She has also guest lectured at Chicago Booth and London Business School and led the Blackstone x Techstars accelerator at the University of Texas at El Paso.

As a non-technical founder, she has co-created apps and algorithms that have been used by thousands, won App of the Day by Mashable, and was featured by Inc, the BBC, and more.

Sophia loves helping entrepreneurs and has advised Chicago Booth’s New Venture Challenge and Microsoft x London College of Fashion incubator.

She holds an MBA from Chicago Booth and a BSc (Hons) in Politics from Bristol. She speaks English, Russian and French.
