  • Ms. Tech: Empowering entrepreneurial women

    By James Janega, Blue Sky Reporter Oct. 23, 2013, 9:20 a.m. Nicole Yeary spent 10 years selling health insurance by telephone, learning to navigate the complex pathways of the health care landscape. The job didn’t last after the economy tanked, but the knowledge she gained about how to get the right medical coverage seemed more pertinent and valuable than ever. An entrepreneur at heart, Yeary crafted a plan to build an online business that matched customers to health plans, and she set out to find venture capitalists and other investors. They didn't seem interested.... cont.

  • How Ms. Tech is working to get women founders recognized and funded

    Nicole Yeary, founder of Ms. Tech, Grind (Antonio Perez / Blue Sky / 2013 ) By Kate MacArthur, Special to Blue Sky April 29, 2014, 5:30 a.m. When Nicole Yeary couldn’t get her health care startup funded in 2011, she launched a Facebook group for women facing the same challenge and a new focus. As she added offline education and networking events, Yeary and Lisa Russell co-founded the startup as Ms. Tech. In February, they established it as a membership organization. Yeary shares lessons about getting investors and why women shouldn’t take an “us versus them” view on men in tech and startups. ...

  • Chicago Tribune :: Nicole Yeary, founder, Ms. Tech

    “There’s at least six (female founders), and we tend to find each other and sometimes it might be a Friday afternoon, and we’ll sit at the same coworking table together and discuss ways we can send each other business or collaborate. I don’t know that that happens in other coworking spaces. Grind from the beginning knew it was important to be diverse and kind of invited us in to experience the space. “Like a terrarium, you have all these elements that play into the ecosystem. Diversity to me is the exact same kind of element.”

  • How support, networking and communication give women in tech a lift

    Support and networking give women in tech a lift Enter your email SIGN UP Privacy Policy Even a nudge can make all the difference to a fledgling entrepreneur. That was clear Wednesday evening as panelists addressed questions about entrepreneurship at LiftUp&UpLift, an event targeted toward women in technology, at the GeneXus USA office in Chicago. The more experienced panelists — GeneXus co-founder and CTO Veronica Buitron, ProofX CEO Dima Elissa and Dough CEO Kristi Ross — answered most of the questions while Francesca Kress, founder and CEO of fashion app Tippity, listened and observed. Deep into the conversation, Elissa extended an arm to Kress, encouraging her to get involved. Kress, 26, then gave the audience advice about networking. “You only need a little experience to help someone below you,” Kress said. Kress’s words and the support of her peers embodied the theme of the event, co-hosted by Ms. Tech, GeneXus USA and YWCA Metropolitan Chicago and designed to uplift women in the technology community. About 40 people, mostly women, participated. Panelists answered questions from moderator Nicole Yeary, co-founder of Ms. Tech, and from audience members. Topics included the power of networking and the ways to use communication to get what you want. Kress said networking has helped her get guidance she needs. Plus, it has helped her provide value by connecting people with similar interests, she said. “To help, it’s (about lending) your network,” Buitron said. Ross said networking can produce jobs for seekers as well as candidates for open positions. She said she prefers job applicants referred by her contacts. Panelists also emphasized the effects of communication. Buitron said women, perhaps more than men, need to be aware of how their words are received in male-dominated industries such as technology. In business settings, she said a considerate delivery can make the difference between selling an idea and turning off a client. “It’s delivery, dealing with people and being respectful,” Ross said. She said “help me understand” is an effective and respectful way to find out what a client needs. Elissa suggested practicing what you might say, perhaps in front of a mirror, in a difficult situation. Men get to know their business partners and learn how to talk to them, and women can improve in that area, Elissa said after the talk. She said a better understanding of one’s audience and a thoughtful approach can help empower women. “I think women have a new forum to become part of the entrepreneurial canvas,” Elissa said, “but it’s got to be balanced against how they represent and present themselves.”

  • Tech-industry leaders see 2015 big for health care, wearables, mobile

    We won’t see flying cars in 2015. But we’ll continue to see advancements in health care technology, wearables, smartphones and more. A panel of four tech-industry leaders gathered at Google Chicago on Thursday night to discuss trends, new gadgets, and the 2015 tech horizon. Blue Sky reporter John Carpenter moderated the event, hosted by the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce. Organizers said 86 people attended. Panelists were Ted Souder, Google’s head of industry, retail; Nicole Yeary, founder of Ms. Tech; Linda Maclachlan, CEO of YJT Solutions; and John Flavin, executive director of the Chicago Innovation Exchange at the University of Chicago. They shared insights on what businesses need to know to prevent being left behind. Health care Panelists said the Internet of Things, the sector for interconnected devices, will lead to big advancements in health care. Data analytics and predictive technologies will enable more personalized medicine. Yeary: Focus on women-founded businesses. Yeary does this by asking her Ms. Tech team to stay knowledgeable about the latest female entrepreneurs. “Tell me about the women who are building companies that are game-changing, anywhere from 3D medical printing to telemedicine.” Future of business The next wave of entrepreneurs may have new technologies at their disposal, and collaboration will rule. Yeary: If you have an idea or product, the ability to build and sell online opens opportunities. “It’s great to see now that we’re not allowing regulation to keep us from innovating.” Copyright © 2016, Chicago Tribune
