Join us for a virtual fireside chat to hear from entrepreneur, executive, mother of four and author, Kelley Steven-Waiss as she share her inspiration and insights from her most recent book, Valley Girls: Lessons from Female Founders in the Silicon Valley and beyond.

image-5In her book, Kelley provides a roadmap of how she and a dozen other women like her beat the odds in getting funded for an early-stage startup. She shares their exhilarating and sometimes disappointing experiences alongside her own, demonstrating the unique obstacles that await women founders and showing that there is hope. She offers inspiration, role models, and a clear path to empower women to get into the game. Each founder’s story provides a guiding light for a different element of the female entrepreneur’s journey from the whiteboard to the exit.

Kelley is based in Los Gatos, CA and currently the Chief Transformation Officer at ServiceNow after her startup, Hitch was acquired by ServiceNow in June 2022. She spent 13 years as a CHRO in Technology before becoming an entrepreneur and sits on the board of FormFactor, Inc., as well as the Advisory boards for both the University of Arizona and the University of San Francisco. She is passionate about helping female innovators and entrepreneurs find their passion and access to funding.
