A Look at Our Recent Networking Event in Seattle

PowerToFly was so happy to be back in Seattle for another amazing evening of women in tech on December 5th. Sponsored by MAKERS Workspaces and held at their spacious, wood-accent venue in the Pikes Place Market neighborhood, the event featured three fast-growing Seattle startups: Convoy, who is changing the way companies think about trucking; Smartsheet, a cloud-based platform that makes it easier for teams to share and collaborate; and Stripe, who help power millions of businesses in 100+ countries and across nearly every industry by providing a set of tools for building and running an internet business.


Hosted by PowerToFly's Director of Customer Success Cristina Duke, the evening included presentations, a panel discussion, an audience Q&A and of course, plenty of opportunities to network with our three featured companies while enjoying wine, sparkling water and delectable treats.

Our panel for the evening included:

  • Clara Yuan, Data Scientist at Convoy
  • Alicia Luengo, Software Engineer at Stripe
  • Carissa Cecil, Software Development Manager at Smartsheet

Topics included what qualities each companies look for when building their team, what they do to keep updated in the fast-moving world of tech, and how they've approached being the only woman at the table.

After our panel wrapped up, guests stuck around to mingle with their peers and to meet members of each of our companies. Plus, Convoy, Smartsheet and Stripe all brought plenty of branded swag and MAKERS Workspaces offered everyone a discount code so nobody left empty handed!
