Forwarding women in STEM to shape the New Normal.


Empowering women to excel in Machine Learning, AI and New Technology.

Mentorship - Storytelling - Venture.


A consistent body of research has proven that enhancing the role played by females in the value-creation process has positive effects on sustainable economic performance. For instance, firms enhancing higher gender equality are likely to obtain a significant economic benefit: an advancement of gender equality could increase global GDP by 26% by 2025 (McKinsey, 2015). Women in decision-making positions ultimately favor the implementation of innovative and competitive business strategies (Romano et al., 2020). Finally, companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams are found to be 25% more likely to have above-average profitability compared to companies in the bottom quartile (Dixon et al., 2020).

Hannah S. Becher

Founder and Host

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are extremely important to me because they are essential to creating a just and equitable society. I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their background or identity.

I founded BrainFruits as a passion project to help women like me to get a seat at the table and shape the future of work. Through BrainFruits, we provide mentorship, hands-on experience, and a supportive community for women in the tech industry. With the BrainFruits team, we want to empower and support women in the industry and give them the tools they need to succeed.

We focus on 3 pillars:

  1. Empowerment: Providing knowledge, tools, and resources to help women navigate the new normal of work and achieve their career goals.

Katarína Bakošová 


Hi, I am Katarína, currently a data engineer in the IT services and financial sector.


I make use of my skills in a start-up-like environment with previous internship experiences in big companies and master program specialization in Stochastic processes and Spatial Modeling.

My way to data engineering led through studies of Probability and Statistics at Charles University in Prague and working as a Data Analyst. I believe that for data-informed decision-making, it is crucial to go beyond the mechanical deployment of statistical analysis and acquire a deep understanding of the data and the topic while seeing the big picture, and having the ability to contextualize.
