That’s why it’s kind of cool to see that Dreamit’s Chief Investment Officer, Karen Griffith Gryga, will be taking the mic on May 31 to talk about entrepreneurship, leadership and the remunerative secrets of the VC world. Griffith Gryga, who started her career as a software developer, has two decades’ worth of experience in the realm of entrepreneurship and venture capital.
“Karen has such a broad and diverse knowledge base that everyone will benefit from her expertise, but given her personal experience and Dreamit Athena it will be especially beneficial for female entrepreneurs and founders,” Maher said of the event, which is happening at the coworking center’s 1608 Walnut St. location.
