Brianne Caplan, Code Your Dreams
While working as a Data Scientist at a technology startup, Brianne founded Code Your Dreams with the mission of driving equity in computer science education and building pathways for underrepresented groups to enter into the technology sector. Brianne has since left the technology sector to focus on this mission for her nonprofit, as well as serving as the Program Director for University of Chicago’s Careers in Computer Science program. As a result of the pandemic and rising student needs, she founded CoderHeroes – the first-ever coding program for kids with a buy-one-give-one charitable model.
Event: 5:00-6:00pm CST
5:45-6:00 Audience Q&A
Our panelist(s) will be up on stage discussing their story. From the beginning to the end, the good times and the bad. We will ask them questions, we’ll let the floor ask them questions, and we’ll hold an open discussion. This is a real conversation and we drill deep.
Growth is one of the best problems a business can have. It is also something that you, as a business owner, Director, C-Suite individual, or team member have to deal with on a regular basis. Whether it’s closing a sale, seeking outside funding from investors, hosting a successful networking event, hiring new members, or even simply not going crazy, you have to be mindful about the actions you take when growth happens.
This is why we launched the Growth Series. Many of us have questions and few of us have all of the answers. VisualFizz, a digital marketing company that predominantly works with ‘growth stage’ businesses has been asked these questions constantly and we felt that it’s time to provide you with some answers.
We have asked Chicago’s best and brightest to speak up and chat with us AND YOU about what they’ve learned through their years of GROWING their own thing. These individuals are industry leaders, founders of notable companies, sales geniuses, event hosts and personalities, and so much more.
We work hard to ensure that you can stay up-to-date with the Growth Series. Click below to see what’s coming up, or to listen to previous Growth Series talks.
