Regular communications are the map to your startup journey. Here's some guidance are getting those communications right!

It must be Monday because I’m both drowning in emails from founders seeking help and deafened by the silence from startups I expected to hear from. As I said to one startup earlier today “your friends, fans and followers won’t turn on a dime to help you unless you bring them along on your journey.” An urgent need for an introduction to an investor, contribution to a future crowd-funding campaign or post on social media to support a Valentine’s Da...

Q: Why are you an entrepreneur?
A: Because I’ve always like the idea of a person being in charge of your own destiny and income, as well as creating something from the ground up that can connect with people — like a product, or, in this case, a custom dress.

"I learned early that sometimes being a software engineer means death by 1000 cuts because you don’t have the power to make it stop. Even the tiniest little things add up to something big – sometimes it’s really death by 1000 paper cuts." - Julie Pagano, a software engineer who currently works at Google, detailing her experience as a woman at male-dominated former employers

"To figure out which cities are the best for women working in tech, SmartAssets ranked cities based on the percentage of the tech industry that is made up of women, the gender pay gap in tech in each city, the average wage for women in tech minus the cost of housing (to account for cost of living), and the three-year employment growth for women in tech."

This post originally appeared in Inc. There's been much written lately about the dearth of women in technology, and about the droves of women who are leaving tech companies. Much of the conversation has centered around Silicon Valley startups, given their reputation as the source of hot new technology. But some new...

Communications or rather the lack of communications are one of those startup things you should fail fast on. That is, fail quickly to do it once then start doing it consistently. It is as much about activating your network as it is a signal of your leadership ability.

Keeping up w speaker & strategist Kelly Hoey // #networking #networks #connecting #InConversationWith #WomenWhoTech #MeetTheInnovators
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.
