We're all entrepreneurs now, Casey Gerald stated in his eloquent and passionate CreativeMornings talk in New York recently......For me "we're all entrepreneurs now" is the renewed embracing and enthusiasm for the dynamic of uniquely solving problems as well as taking ownership of our financial health and opportunities for wealth creation.

My current to-do is to challenge assumptions and think creatively by dropping OR and substituting AND. Can we have it all? Yes, if we think with an AND.

Why is the full participation of women in high growth entrepreneurial ventures important? Simple: economic growth. If women's entry in to the labor force was the tailwind for long-term economic growth in the 20th Century, it is a safe assumption that moving women's paltry 10% representation in high-growth firms will be the tailwind for growth in this century.
The number of women launching high-growth businesses is a bottomline indicator of America's future economic health.

Our industry spends too much time sensationalizing the fundraise while ignoring the fact that this process marks the beginning, not the end, of a startup’s journey."

Introduction
“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship” – Forbes“25 Smartest Women On Twitter” – Fast Company“100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter” – Business Insider

Kelly Hoey is a speaker, strategist, startup advisor and board member. A connection-maker, networking strategist and expert community builder, Kelly is known for her leadership in building valuable professional networks, understanding the dynamics of engaged communities and the “how” of raising visibility, online and off. 

In 2011, Kelly co-founded Women Innovate Mobile, LLC (WIM), the first startup accelerator focused exclusively on fast-tracking the growth of early-stage mobile technology ventures with gender-diverse founding teams. Kelly continues to invest in as well as advise emerging technology companies.

As managing director of WIM, Kelly was responsible for building the accelerator’s global influencer network of partnerships and connections (over 100,000 online connections, including 88,000 followers on Google+). She was also responsible for leading WIM’s marketing efforts including creating the Google+ Hangout on Air Series #womenwhotech and the “Meet The Innovators” speaker series launched with Apple, Inc. in 2013.

Prior to her entrepreneurial leap, Kelly was immersed in the legal world, initially as a corporate attorney, and ultimately in leadership positions at global law firm White & Case, playing a key role in the development of the firm’s global alumni, professional development and women’s initiatives. In 2009, Kelly became the first president of the women’s business networking group 85 Broads and worked directly with 85 Broads’ CEO/Founder on strategies to re-engage the membership base.
