We want to change the conversation about women in tech. We believe that women are committed and passionate technologists and that diverse teams make better products.
We will create an environment where both genders feel welcome to build cool things together.
Lauren Gilchrist loves product like a fat kid loves cake. With over 5 years experience conceptualizing and building web entities, she is now the driving force behind MamásLatinas, the first bilingual social network for latina moms.
Previously, she has wrangled the interwebs at Yipit, Hoseanna, and Urgent Career. When she's not trying to read her users' minds, she can be found hosting start-up dinner parties, making a mean maple bbq chicken, or exploring the great outdoors with friends.
She recently co-founded Floored, an online 3D company for visualizing, designing, and sharing interior spaces.
