Women Entrepreneurs and Technologists with Nicole Yeary
Women Entrepreneurs and Technologists with Nicole Yeary Show Notes In this episode we are talking about women entrepreneurs and technologists. Our guest, Nicole Yeary has some amazing stories about how getting laser focused yields real results and how saying yes more often could be a game changer. She shares her High-5 model for success with us. Nicole has led Ms.Tech, a Chicago-based company focused on seeing more women start and scale technology, and tech enabled companies, as the founding President since 2014. Nicole also guides the next generation of startup companies through a strong partnership between Ms.Tech and 1871 as the co-facilitator of WiSTEM, a curriculum-based program that connects women to capital, community, and technology resources. Since 2010, Nicole has made it her mission to see more women capture the resources needed to build scalable startup companies. In just under a year, Ms. Tech was recognized in “Crain's Guide to Networking” as one of “Six Great Tech Groups, practically guaranteed to commune with the scene's best and brightest!" Nicole is also a sponsoring member of the United Nations, UN Women, Social Enterprise Alliance, Internet Society and OpenID. Most recently Nicole was recognized as one of Chicago’s “Top 100 Innovators” by Tribune, awarded "Prominent Woman in Tech" by the Illinois Technology Association, 35 Under 35 Making an Impact, among the 100 Most Inspirational Women by Today's Chicago Woman, recognized as 2017 YWCA Promise Leadership Award, MAFA Masters Honoree as an “Industry Entrepreneur Emerging Leader,” recognized as a 2016 Women Tech Leader by Chicago Woman Magazine, and among Huffington Post’s "Women In Tech.”
