I’m a speaker and strategist. I’ve been listed in Forbes as one of five women changing the world of VC/Entrepreneurship, in Fast Company as One of the 25 Smartest Women on Twitter and in Business Insider as One of the 100 Most Influential Tech Women on Twitter. In the never too late to start category, Forbes identified me as an “up and comer” at age 48. I’m active in the startup community as an accelerator mentor and board member. I appear frequently on CNBC’s Power Pitch. In 2011, I co-founded the first startup accelerator investing exclusively in mobile ventures founded by women. I'm Chief Tech Ambassador for the YWCA of NYC's Girls Geek Club. I used to be a lawyer.

Looking for mentoring guidance, you're in the right place. How can I help you?
