New York City has provided me with incredible opportunities since I moved here in 1998, and giving back through the YWCA is one way I can thank a city that has given me so many opportunities. - Kelly Hoey

Digital, mobile, jumping into the early-stage investment arena, marketing lessons you can learn from an investment bank + Pizza Hut plus the date for the next Meet The Innovators at Apple (KIND Snacks CEO is the interviewee, so get the date on your calendar).
Mobile is eating the world and adtech is the new big brother. Identity, personalization and retargeting are the advertising tech trends to watch – the focus is all on knowing you the consumer, better than a self-help book knows you or you know yourself. Last week I moderated the “AppTech: When ...

Q: Define “entrepreneur.”
A: An entrepreneur is someone who sees a need in the world, and is compelled to fulfill it. They are driven by passion and refuse to take no for an answer. They are dogged in their determination for success and are not deterred from their goal by minor setbacks. Entrepreneurs create the future, and move society forward by way of their innovative thinking.

Investor and Startup Mentor Kelly Hoey, also flying in for the event, encourages women, “You can’t wait for opportunity to find you. Tapping into networks, building connections, taking action – that is how you change your career or launch a new venture. These are just a few of the reasons why I’m thrilled to participate in The DEC’s ‘Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs’ event.”

"....it is very hard for female entrepreneurs to get funded. I will say it this way. I will say it more generally. I think sometimes it can be very hard for entrepreneurs to get funded if they don’t fit the canonical image of that sort of Silicon Valley or Seattle area tech guy." - Seattle entrepreneur Jonathan Sposato

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.
