Halfstack Highlights: Ep. 65 - Meet Prianka Dhir of Beyond the Booth
Hello everyone!Welcome to the latest episode of Halfstack Highlights!! This is Jen Lezan, welcome back to all of you who have subscribed to the series and for those of you who are new here - I am the Editor in Chief of a Chicago based digital magazine called Halfstack Magazine and I am also one of the hosts of our podcast: Halfstack Highlights. I am really excited to share this week’s episode as it features another badass female founder I met through the Project Entrepreneur Alumni group. Project Entrepreneur connected me with more female founders than I would have ever imagined. Over the last year since I attended the 3-day startup workshop and venture pitch competition, I’ve connected with nearly a hundred founders and organizations. Each one has a story that is somewhat familiar, but also incredibly inspirational. I’ve had the opportunity to share their stories with readers on the blog, in past issues and on our Podcast. Every time, each woman I connect with, inspires me to keep moving forward with the creative work I do. They highlight the grit, inner strength and fortitude that women entrepreneurs & creatives alike have. They are a constant reminder to not quit my daydream. All Images Courtesy of Beyond the BoothThe women who I’ve been able to connect with all have a common thread, an undeniable strength and creative synergy that propel their business forward. Prianka Dhir is another founder who was a part of the Project Entrepreneur cohort who I recently connected with. She’s the founder of Beyond the Booth, a trade show mobile app. Prianka founded her company Beyond the Booth in Vancouver, Canada and moved her business out to San Francisco about a year and a half ago. She shared that it has been a really great experience learning the ins and outs of growing a tech business as a female founder and took some time to go into more detail about her journey with us for today’s episode. If you are a woman who is working to get your company off the ground, interested in learning about how technology is evolving in the event industry or are interested in hearing more about Prianka’s journey as an entrepreneur than this is the episode for you.
