In September, 2011, in the Design District of San Francisco, Trinity Ventures hosted a panel and networking event for entrepreneurs and senior executives marketing to women online and through mobile devices.
The panel, moderated by Geoff Fowler, reporter for the Wall Street Journal, explored the growing dominance and buying power of digital women and shared insights for capitalizing on this market opportunity in the red-hot sectors of commerce, social networking and gaming.
Panelists included top executives from the Internet's biggest powerhouses as well as seasoned entrepreneurs and founders of promising startups:
Josh Berman: Found and CEO, BeachMint
Darrell Cavens: Founder and CEO, Zulily
Fran Hauser: President, Digital for Time, Inc
Katie Mitic: Head of Platform Marketing, Facebook
Stephanie Tilenius: VP of Commerce, Google
The event was organized and hosted by Patricia Nakache, VC and General Partner at Trinity Ventures.
