Today my guest is Leslie Fishlock. Leslie is the Founder & CEO of Geek Girl, everyone’s favorite resource for empowering women in tech, supporting startups and making technology easy to understand and use for everyone from 8-88. Since 2006, Geek Girl has accomplished this through its highly touted, localized Geek Girl Tech Conferences around the country, workshops, seminars, consulting, Help Desks, Geek Girl for Hire, Geek Girl TV and monthly meetups. In 2014, Geek Girl has expanded to 3 cities for TechCon; Boston, San Diego and Las Vegas.

Leslie’s vision for education, evangelism, entrepreneurialism, and empowering women is apparent when you meet her. Leslie prides herself on being “the resource”, and will share everything she knows about bring an entrepreneur, startups, growing your business and tech trends with anyone who asks. She is overly, nay, abundantly passionate about Geek Girl and spends every minute of the day trying to come up with new ideas for the female-powered organization to serve everyone

Leslie has been involved in internet startups since the first DotCom bubble in 1997 and has been a champion for startups as well as women in tech since then. Prior to Geek Girl, Leslie was the Marketing Director for financial web startup StockTwits as well as working with angel investor Howard Lindzon, and previous to that was at the helm of Genevate, a web applications company she and business partner and geeky boyfriend, Chris Corriveau started in 2002.

Leslie now calls San Diego her home, along with said geeky boyfriend, and their devoted but highly manipulative Australian Shepherds. When they aren’t working on their own startups, you can find them supporting, mentoring and investing in other startups around the country.
