Catherine Cook will address difficulties faced by female entrepreneurs

(NYSE MKT:MEET), the public market leader for social discovery,
announced today that Co-founder and Vice President of Brand Strategy
Catherine Cook will speak this week at SXSW. Cook’s presentation, titled
Up in a Man’s World
,” will focus on some of the challenges female
entrepreneurs face when launching a tech startup.

“Starting Up in a Man’s World” will highlight the traits unique to women
that can be huge strengths in the entrepreneurial journey through the
male-dominated tech industry. In her presentation, Cook will share her
personal story – from co-founding her own company at the age of 15 years
old to being on the management team of a successful, publicly-traded
company today.

“There are very few female entrepreneurs and leaders, especially in the
tech industry,” said Cook. “While being a woman might seem like a
disadvantage in that regard, I believe that women actually possess many
qualities that can make us much stronger entrepreneurs. My ultimate goal
is to empower potential female entrepreneurs and help them recognize
those valuable qualities.”

Cook’s presentation, part of the Future15 series, will be on Friday,
March 7th at 3:30 p.m. in Ballroom F of the Austin Convention
