Season 3: Episode 3
Learning Resilience with Jenny Lawton.
We're several weeks into quarantine, and I am personally feeling the need to connect with others more than ever, and consider how we not only get through this period of isolation, but how we come out of it stronger, more resilient and more thoughtful about the world we want to create.
This week, I had a chance to connect with Jenny Lawton. I've had the privilege of getting to work with Jenny for the past few years at Techstars, and have always been in awe of her accomplishments and story. She's achieved things in the corporate world that many of us only dream about, including being the COO of littleBits Electronics, leading the rapid growth and ultimate acquisition for Makerbot a pioneering company in the field of 3D printing, and now serving as the Chief Innovation Officer at Techstars. She was inducted into the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame in 2014.
In our conversation, she shared more about her own journey to forge a career in tech, her personal pivot to run a bookstore as a young mother, and her path to corporate executive again. You can listen to the episode wherever you listen to podcasts, or in the link below.
