Hot flashes. Night sweats. Hormonal changes. Weight gain. Menopause is no picnic. But, according to Jill Angelo, founder & CEO of Genneve, that doesn’t mean it’s not worth talking about. Sharing. Connecting. Empowering. Genneve is a digital healthcare platform designed to provide the 50M+ women heading into or going through menopause with access to education, community and curated products/services from the comfort of their home.Women should feel empowered and in control of their health. It’s time to break down the taboo. Jill uses the SheWorx community to engage, contribute and be part of a pioneering effort that will benefit women for years to come. “We’re at the cusp of real change in women investing in women, and SheWorx is at the head of that movement. I want in!”

What do artificial intelligence and gender equity have in common? Pipeline Equity. Using an SaaS platform, Pipeline utilizes state of the art technology to enable businesses to realize the economic gains from bridging the gender equity gap. Katica Roy, founder & CEO, aims to close the gender gap by examining practices on a macro (company) to micro (individual) scale, quantifying each step along the way. In 10 years, we will have cut the gender gap in half, from 170 years to 85 years.

She is thrilled to be attending SheWorx100, to meet fellow entrepreneurs and investors,“who are looking to invest in smart, savvy businesswomen.”

Inclusive innovation moving companies toward a true level playing field. Amanda values the SheWorx community because it provides an approach focused on relationship, action, transparency, collaboration, and accessibility. Why is she attending SheWorx100? Finding a strong intro or the right connection is the greatest challenge. “I have heard great things from previous attendees.”
