Backed By the Tech Community  

With promises of tax breaks and a laissez-faire approach to regulation, many in the tech community favor Romney. In a recent poll, 64% of chief executives, CFOs and other company officers at tech companies as well as venture capitalists, tech entrepreneurs and consultants felt a Romney administration would be more prosperous to their industry. 

Well-known venture capitalist and Facebook investor Marc Andreessen has contributed more than $100,000 to the Romney campaign. He’s also been victorious in tapping Silicon Valley heavyweights for super PACs. We’re talking key tech backers such as chief executive of Hewlett-Packard Meg Whitman; Howard Cox, advisory partner at the venture capital firm Greylock Partners; and early Facebook investor Peter Thiel, who gave over $4 million to conservative super PACs this year.

Hundreds applied to the FOCUS100 Pitch-It Competition, but only four made the cut. These four promising start-ups founded/co-founded by black women proved to be the main attraction, not only because of their live products, but because of their experience, education, passion, and business acumen under pressure. All of the winners received coaching sessions with Jeanne Sullivan of Starvest Partners and Lauren Maillan Bias of Gen Y Capital. But only one stood victorious. The winner walked away with:

- Finalist status for TechStars NYC 2013 session

- A Non-Pitch Meeting with Andreessen Horowitz, and

- A Meeting with Comcast Ventures.

Can you guess who won?

A Lifelong History: It used to be acceptable to chronologically list every job you ever had on your resume. However, today’s hiring managers are more concerned about the relevance of your experience rather than the length of your experience. For an experienced professional, listing your first job out of high school isn’t really necessary unless it’s the only job you’ve ever had. While 10 years of work history is the standard, it’s okay to list older experience if it is relevant.
