AboutOne CEO Joanne Lang to Present at the BlogHer Entrepreneurs ‘12 Conference
Lang will speak and provide mentoring at BlogHer’s event developed in response to the recurring questions: “Where are the women in tech?” and “Where are all the women starting companies?”
Philadelphia, PA and Santa Clara, CA – Mar 21, 2012 – AboutOne (http://www.AboutOne.com) today announced that CEO Joanne Lang will be speaking and serving as a mentor at the BlogHer Entrepreneurs Conference on March 22nd and 23rd. AboutOne is the premier family organizer that uses cloud technology to organize busy family lives, and Lang will be sharing her experiences at this event focused on business, entrepreneurism and technology.
Held in Santa Clara, California, BlogHer’s intensive two-day conference will bring together over 50 industry experts and 100 women from all over the country for a series of panel sessions and individual mentorships. This is the second year for the conference, and when it launched last year BlogHer founder Lisa Stone said, “Our goal? To inspire more women to take the leap: To fill the proverbial pipelines…funding pipelines, management pipelines, boardroom pipelines, product roadmap pipelines…with more women-led initiatives in business, technology and media.”
“I’m delighted about this opportunity to take part in the BlogHer Entrepreneurs Conference,” says Lang. “AboutOne has partnered with Microsoft and Suze Orman (IDSafe) to release a new version of our web app, and we’ll be launching a companion Windows Phone app this month, followed by Android and iPhone apps later this spring. BlogHer Entrepreneurs ‘12 is a great opportunity for me to share my experiences and lessons learned with other entrepreneurs.”
