About Keynote Speaker Heather Cabot

Heather is a storyteller by nature and by trade. She is a writer, former network TV journalist, investor in women-led startups and mom to happy, healthy twins. Her latest project, Geek Girl Rising: Inside the Sisterhood Shaking Up Tech (St. Martin’s Press, May 2017), is a non-fiction narrative that uncovers the true stories of the women who haven’t asked for permission from Silicon Valley to build the future. The acclaimed book is being developed into a scripted TV series by ABC Studios and MILOJO, the production company owned by Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos.

She spent the most of her career chasing stories as a TV reporter and anchor for local news stations from Burlington, VT to Denver, CO to Washington, DC and joined ABC News as a correspondent in 2002. Her byline has appeared in a host of newspapers and magazines, including USA Today, The Baltimore Sun, The Denver Post and Parents. In 2007, Heather started covering tech trends for Yahoo and served as its national on-air tech expert which included regular segments on TODAY. In 2012, she became an adjunct professor at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and recently joined the Columbia J-School Alumni Board.

As an investor and adviser to early stage ventures, Heather has had the privilege to collaborate with Pipeline Angels and Golden Seeds. Her portfolio is focused on women-led startups including Project Gravitas, Cisse Trading Company and DayOne Response.

The love of Heather’s life is a former J-school classmate who is a former 60 Minutes producer turned entertainment and digital media executive. They spend most of our free time raising their tween twins who continually challenge, amaze and teach them new things every day. When Heather is not researching the next big story, you can find her exploring the world on adventures with her family, walking her dog Midnight and “training for life” on her Peloton spin bike, in the pool or at the gym.
