REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Nicole Yeary Biography

Nicole Yeary is the founder and CEO of Ms.Tech, a Chicago-based company focused on seeing more women start and scale companies. Yeary and her team encourage women to develop entrepreneurial management thinking, educated risk-taking, creative problem solving, and inspirational, supportive leadership for their teams, organizations, and businesses through education, mentorship, networking, and information sharing.

She has spent over fifteen years in leadership positions with Fortune 500 companies in various capacities such as Direct Sales, Marketing Services, and Learning Development and several years helping build a startup within a corporation that collectively became the most profitable unit.

Yeary now invests her time advising and guiding the next generation of startup companies through a strong partnership between Ms.Tech and 1871 as the co-facilitator WiSTEM, a curriculum-based program that connects women to capital, community, and technology resources.

Since 2010, Yeary has made it her mission to see more women capture the resources needed to build scalable startup companies. In just under a year, Ms.Tech was recognized in “Crain's Guide to Networking” as one of “Six Great Tech Groups, practically guaranteed to commune with the scene's best and brightest!"

Yeary delivers and shares her expertise by serving select advisory boards. She is a sponsoring member of the United Nations, UN Women, Social Enterprise Alliance, Internet Society, and OpenID.

Yeary has been recognized as one of Chicago’s “Top 100 Innovators” by Tribune and awarded "Prominent Woman in Tech" by the Illinois Technology Association and made the 35 Under 35 Making an Impact list. She is among Today's Chicago Woman's list of the 100 Most Inspirational Women. Yeary was awarded MAFA Masters Honoree as an “Industry Entrepreneur Emerging Leader,” and recognized as a 2016 Women Tech Leader by Chicago Woman Magazine.
