A Conversation With Women In Tech At Four Fast-Growing Startups

PowerToFly is back in San Francisco for another exciting and transparent evening of cocktails and conversations featuring women tech leaders from Calm, Cloudflare, Forward and Philo.

Calm's mission is to make the world happier and healthier. They are the #1 app for mindfullness and wellness, with over 34 million downloads and over 225,000 5-star reviews. They were recently named both Apple's "App of the Year" and "Editor's Choice" by Google Play.

Cloudflare's goal is to build a better Internet. Today, Cloudflare runs one of the world's largest distributed networks that powers more than 10 trillion requests per month, which is nearly 10 percent of all Internet requests worldwide. Their customers range from Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits to small businesses and budding entrepreneurs.

Forward is redesigning the way we deliver healthcare using all the technologies healthcare has neglected: sensors, mobile, and AI. Named by Time Magazine as "a best invention of 2017", Forward's technology allows patients to monitor their health in real time with their doctors through blood testing, take-home wearables, and a digital health chart.

Philo is a small, ambitious startup building the future of television. Their product lets you watch your favorite shows on all the devices you care about, with intelligent search, insightful discovery, and effortless sharing — in short, they are building the TV watching experience that we've always wanted for ourselves.
