Creator of Tranquilo Mat to discuss how she became an entrepreneur by following her passion and curiosity
The next New Hampshire High Tech Council (Council) TechWomen Power Breakfast on Wednesday, February 14 features Tranquilo, LLC CEO and Founder Melissa Gersin who will discuss how her work and passion led her to create her own technology and ultimately launch her own company. The Valentine’s Day Power Breakfast is from 7:30 to 9 am at the Manchester Country Club, 180 South River Road in Bedford.
“So many of us have innovative ideas, spurred by our passions and experiences, that we never pursue,” said Shannon Herrmann, TechWomen|TechGirls committee member. “Melissa’s story is one of confidence and conviction. She pursued her ideas and found success with her company. Her journey is an example to all that a good idea is always worth pursuing if it is supported by passion and persistence. Her product, the Tranquilo Mat, helps empower parents with the tools they need to soothe and create peaceful bonds with their babies.” Read more.
The TechWomen Power Breakfast series is part of the Council’s TechWomen|TechGirls initiative that builds on a strong community of women enthusiastic about technology and supporting efforts where girls are exploring STEM as a career or area of study. TechWomen|TechGirls holds programs for professional women to connect, collaborate and explore ideas around career development, technology initiatives, and innovation. The initiative also deploys volunteers and mentors to support academic STEM initiatives and events for girls across New Hampshire.
“We are excited to offer a place for women in the technology fields to come together and create lasting meaningful relationships while learning from each other’s successes,” said Candice Benson of Benson Consulting and chair of the TechWomen Power Breakfast committee. “We have a lot of brilliant women in our community and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate and support them with our power breakfast series.”
The breakfast series will take place the second Wednesday of every month.
The TechWomen|TechGirls breakfast series is sponsored by TD Bank, Newforma and Measured Progress.
