Event Description:
Making a Difference (using Agile) at Work, Home and Volunteering, featuring Allison Grappone of Ascendle.

The concept of Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is not just applicable in tech. Allison will share how she has used agile concepts to kickstart a NH women investor initiative, launch and sell a startup, and manage a heavy load of work responsibilities. Hint: Start small, evaluate, and revise.

Allison Grappone has 20 years of experience systematizing processes in non-profit, for-profit, and startup environments. As a Partner and the new VP of Marketing at Ascendle, she will refresh Ascendle's marketing to communicate the company's proven software development process. 

Before joining Ascendle, Allison founded Nearby Registry in 2012, an e-commerce startup supporting local economies and expanded the business into communities across the country. She sold the business to a Seattle company in 2015. 

Allison played a role in the formative years of the Entrepreneurship Foundation of New Hampshire and the Governor's Live Free and Start Council, focusing her efforts on increasing the number of women investors and tech experts in New Hampshire.

The TechWomen Power Breakfast series is part of the Alliance'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|TechGirls 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 takes place on the second Wednesday of every month.
