A Look at PowerToFly’s Final Event of 2018

For us here at PowerToFly, 2019 is in full swing! We already have a slew of live and web events lined up for January not to mention our VIP Program (where VIPs can enjoy weekly virtual lunch & learns with women leaders) and new offerings such as career coaching.

But before we jump too much into the new year, I wanted to take a quick look back at our final event of 2018, an evening of "cocktails and conversations" featuring some of New York's fastest-growing startups.


Hosted at Rise New York on Monday, December 17th, the evening included presentations by women leaders at Better Mortgage, a company using technology to change the way people finance their homes; Blockstack, a new world of apps that let you own your data and maintain your privacy, security and freedom; Chainalysis, their cryptocurrency investigation software helps law enforcement and financial institutions identify and stop bad actors who are using cryptocurrencies for illicit activity such as fraud, extortion, and money laundering; and RapidSOS, whose innovations are modernizing the 9-1-1 system, making it possible for first responders to get to you quicker than ever before.

Our attendees had a chance to network with each of our featured companies over wine and small bites at the start and the end of the evening. In between, our women tech leaders dove a bit deeper into their own career journeys, the history of their companies, the tech that they use and what they are looking for in potential team members.

PowerToFly is incredibly grateful to Rise New York for hosting us on what was truly an excellent end to 2018. See you this year!
