Personally as a Latina in tech, it was so inspiring to see what these women are building and the passion they have for giving back to their communities shines through.
Let’s make it our mission to see how we can help these ambitious and fearless entrepreneurs succeed in their startup journeys!
Lissette Rojas, CEO and founder of Trix and Trax joined us virtually from Venezuela where she is creating talent development programs for kids to help them gain confidence and leadership skills. Imagine doing this in a war-torn country, we found her mission and dedication incredibly inspiring! View her video presentation here.
Vanessa Camones showed us the power of being able to engage and enjoy video content with friends and shared her marketing strategy aimed at the hispanic market. DabKick is a fun new app that allows you to engage in shared experiences over mobile. Download DabKick for iOS here! View her video presentation here.
Remy Meraz shared her vision for using snack size video content to help people tackle emotional and other hardships with actionable advice from experts. It’s a valuable service for people that can’t afford to see a therapist or just want a quick reboot to get them going in the right direction. View her video presentation here.
Martha Hernandez is building a platform that will help low wage workers create a path to career growth. She recently surpassed her crowd-raising goal and is set to launch her first pilot program with Yelp. View her video presentation here.

Nuria Santamaria’s company provides fun interactive multilingual content to help kids learn languages while they’re having fun. Nuria was unable to join us, but she was there in spirit and we love what her company is doing to preserve the nursery rhymes of our youth and promote multilingual education.
Listening to these ladies present made me so proud to be a Latina in Tech and to be able to support their entrepreneurial endeavors which are all about giving back to communities with a focus on impact over profit.
Keep up the great work ladies! Estamos orgullasas de ti!
