Venture capital is a critical source of funding for innovation, but how do you know which sectors are tech bubbles in the making? What are the metrics that matter in an unpredictable market? In this Meet The Innovators conversation hosted at the Apple Store in SoHo, I speak with venture capitalists Joy Marcus (DFJ Gotham Ventures), Donna Novitsky (Yiftee CEO), Jeanne Sullivan (StarVest Partners), Kathleen Utecht (Comcast Ventures), and Ellie Wheeler (Greycroft Partners).
Kelly Hoey is the author of Build Your Dream Network (January 2017 / Tarcher Perigee). She has been lauded from Forbes (“1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship”) to Fast Company (“1 of the 25 Smartest Women On Twitter”) to Business Insider (“1 of the 100 Most Influential Tech Women On Twitter”) and Inc.

Empowering A Billion Women By 2020 included her on their list of the “100 Most Influential Global Leaders Empowering Women Worldwide”. Not bad for a former corporate lawyer.
