Keynote speaker:

Tereza Nemessanyi  leads Microsoft’s presence with Startups in the East, a newly-created role to help high-growth startups go further and faster by leveraging the best of Microsoft. A seasoned media and technology executive and entrepreneur, Tereza’s breadth and depth of experience across high-growth startups and the world’s largest enterprises is truly unique. Companies she has worked with, at senior levels, include PwC, IBM, The Walt Disney Company, Unilever, Symphony IRI, Interpublic Group, and the InterAmerican Development Bank (IADB). As Founder/CEO of web startup Honestly Now, she was named one of Forbes “Ten Female Entrepreneurs to Watch”. She also was first employee to launch the first commercial television network in post-Communist Europe, which was the most successful station launch of all time (IPO 1995: CETV). Tereza is a sought-after speaker (TED, SXSW, Lean Startup Conference, Harvard Club), and has blogged for Huffington Post and Reuters. She earned a dual MBA/MA at The Wharton School and Lauder Institute. Tereza is passionate about creating the future for girls in tech, and forging new models for sustainable work and innovation. She lives in New York with her husband and two daughters, who love technology at least as much as she does.
