Prowess exists to level the imbalance for women in the workforce – starting with caregivers hungry to return. We do this through our integrated platform consisting of upskilling resources, confidence training, Community and job-pairing. The data collected throughout the platform goes into our job-matching algorithm that matches candidates based on skills-needed, behavior-style and value alignment. This holistic, data-driven approach provides the opportunity for employers to access our talent pool and receive a shortlist of candidates cutting the hiring and ramp-up time in half – saving time, money and headaches.
Ashley Connell, CEO and Founder of Prowess Project, has been an unstoppable tech marketer and entrepreneur in both Austin and London over the past 12 years of her career. With a keen ability to marry the art and science of marketing, she has honed her dynamic skills in key positions including launching and driving all European marketing initiatives during her tenure at Spiceworks, and managing Global Field Marketing at SanDisk.
After graduating from the rigorous Founders Institute — undertaken while a partner in her own marketing firm, A10 Partners — Ashley’s now changing the lives of frustrated managers, stay-at-home moms seeking meaningful work, and doing all she can to close the gender gap. In her pretty much non-existent spare time she enjoys yoga, walks with her dog, cheering on her beloved Longhorns, and spaghetti and meatballs.
Peerby enables you to borrow and rent the things you need from people in your neighborhood. Why spend hundreds of dollars on things you only need once or once in a while? Imagine an ordinary street with the homes of roughly 100 families. Try to imagine how many durable consumer goods are kept in all these houses: power tools, lawn mowers, barbecues, sports gear, camping equipment, bikes, cars, motor cycles, etc. What would happen if we could make these products easily accessible to all the people in this neighborhood? Doe these people really need a hundred lawn mowers? Wouldn’t five be enough?
Peerby.com is the world’s first peer-to-peer sharing platform that actively creates supply by asking around through Facebook, push notification and e-mail.
