2018 has begun, and pundits and opinion makers are predicting that 2018 will be the “Year of the Woman”. That of course, is yet to be seen. And we have heard this prediction before. Yet it is hard to deny that women have made enormous progress in the past few years. I partnered up with my friend Cam Kashani, a leader in empowering female founders, to profile some “limit breaking female founders” and the lessons that they can teach us.

We hope that you can find empowering and actionable words of wisdom from this third set of profiles.

Jessica Naziri, TechSesh.co, Founder and CEO

Who She Is and How She Has Broken Limits:

“Recently named one of INC’s 30 Inspiring Women in Tech, Jessica Naziri is the ultimate combination of geek and chic. A true multi-hyphenate in trade, Jessica is a tech and social media expert and a women empowerment powerhouse. She started her career as a technology reporter for CNBC and the LA Times and later as a tech exec at a local start-up in LA. After seeing the gender gap in technology first hand, she decided to make a difference by starting TechSesh.co, a modern woman’s destination to all things tech. Her mission is to be inclusive, to inspire, to educate, and equip girls with the tech skills and knowledge to pursue 21st century opportunities.

TechSesh.co was born out of her passion for creating a platform that celebrates incredibly dynamic females in the tech space and a mission to close the tech-creative gap and come up with development solutions that show that it is okay to be creative, fashionable and involved with the tech industry.
