Women in Tech Week: Inspiration and Insights from Female Founders

Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 8.44.43 PM.png

For the second year, CommonBond invites you to join us and hear the stories of New York's female founders. Each founder will share her experiences of building her company from the ground up. Learn about the opportunities and challenges faced by these founders in the first 365 days of their businesses, and hear advice on how to propel your own career forward.

This event is part of Women in Tech Week, a week-long holiday that recognizes the accomplishments of women in technology and seeks to inspire women to pursue technology careers. We strongly believe that technology companies have an obligation to build the pipeline for talented women, and that everyone can be a part of this effort.

Enjoy food and drinks as you mingle with other supporters of women in tech as well as our lineup of rockstar speakers.

Speakers include:

  • Kelly Peeler, co-founder and CEO, NextGenVest

  • Jennifer Fitzgerald, co-founder and CEO, Policygenius

  • Georgene Huang, co-founder and CEO, Fairygodboss

  • Angela Ceresnie, CEO, ClimbCredit; co-founder, Orchard Platform

  • Yi-Hsian Godfrey, co-founder, Apiari

  • Mary Williamson, co-founder and CEO, PortfolioStrat (Cloudstrat Technologies); CTO, Stratagem Technologies
