Forbes Highlights Captureproof’s CEO Meghan Conroy as Paving the way for Women in Tech

September 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

A recent Forbes article notes, if you’ve ever been to a tech entrepreneurship event, you might have noticed that the men’s line for the restroom is always longer than the women’s. Author Kelsey Meyer goes on to say,  “While this is convenient for me as a woman, it’s also a disappointing sign that women are still visibly absent from the tech industry.”

The article does not focus on the lack of women in the tech entrepreneurship community, but rather highlights the strong statement made by female CEOs at the inaugural TechStars Chicago. Sarah Press from Project Fixup and Meghan Conroy from captureproof were two women, from a class of 10, that signaled increasing interest and success of women in tech entrepreneurship.

But based on this year’s pitches from TechStars Chicago, the author is optimistic. “Hopefully, with their direction and mentorship, we’ll see the ratio change, and we can welcome more women to the stage at demo day.”

captureproof CEO Meghan Conroy offered her insight as one of those women paving the way, “we need to acknowledge and embrace the differences between men and women.” She explained that throughout TechStars, she didn’t feel the need to become “one of the guys” and instead led with her own style.

Not only does the future look bright for female entrepreneurs, but these two companies – captureproof and Project Fixup – look well on their way to a bright future as well.
