Beah Burger-Lenehan’s acceptance speech was a pitch. Of course.
Burger-Lenehan, Ticketleap’s VP of Product, won Technologist of the Year at the first-ever Rad Awards. She pitched Met, Ticketleap’s new mobile app for keeping track of people you meet in real life. Met’s debut is timed with this year’s Philly Tech Week (here’s how to get it).
The Rad Awards, a project from PhillyVoice editor Leah Kauffman and her site Rad Girls, honored women in tech, academia and activism last Saturday at the Dreaming Building in Northern Liberties.
