    Jennifer Thompson, B.A., M.A. (Econ)

    Jennifer is a seasoned start-up executive, angel investor and Board member with a focus on the development of hardware companies in the Vancouver tech sector. She has served as the Executive VP of Enterra Feed Corporation, an environmental technology company commercializing the use of the Black Soldier Fly to convert food waste into animal feed and concentrated natural fertilizer. She has also been the V.P. Corporate Development & Corporate Secretary for TSX-Venture listed EnWave Corporation, commercializing a high-speed, low-energy method for dehydrating food and pharmaceuticals. Jennifer has worked for Westport Innovations developing the market for natural gas engines for buses and trucks in Central and Western Europe, and was a Project Manager and Application Developer at an early-stage Geographic Information Systems company, Facet Decision Systems. Jennifer is currently an Executive-in-Residence and start-up mentor at Foresight Cleantech Accelerator, SFU and UBC, and is an investor and Board member in Vancouver-based hardware start-ups Acuva Technologies and CuePath Innovations. Her non-profit work includes her role as the incoming Board Chair of Urban Academy school in New Westminster, and working behind the scenes to establish a new Maker Space in New Westminster.

     My Perspective:

    As the (often) only woman at the start-up executive table or in the investor room, I have struggled without an image of “success” for myself and so have made many, probably avoidable, mistakes along the way. As I make my way through my late-40’s, I have realized that I am now responsible for creating that image for women who will come after me and, as such, I make an effort to include younger women in my hiring, mentoring and investment efforts; I work to prop other women peers up in their careers; and I consciously demonstrate the value of having senior women at the table throughout my professional life.  

     

    Jeanette Jackson

    Jeanette is an entrepreneur and business strategist with broad-based experience in business development, marketing, operations and finance.

    As President of The Brag Company, a combination of online and retail product distribution for smart and luxurious products, Jeanette oversaw the complete restructuring of the business. This included growth in local and international sales, engaging outsource partners to better manage business costs, launching new product and services, and developing a comprehensive plan for the next stage of growth.


    Jeanette is currently an Executive in Residence with BC's Foresight Cleantech Accelerator.  He is also a Futurpreneur Business Coach & Mentor, New Ventures BC Mentor & Judge, and Provincially Appointed Board Member on the local police board. She holds a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration (International Business & Marketing).

    Perspective

    The number of women in tech is not increasing at the same pace of the industry itself.  We all know that women on teams and in leadership roles help companies achieve unprecedented results.  During the first 10 years of my career, I was surrounded by men in male dominated industries. Though I have a strong passion for supporting women only initiatives, the reality is, we, as women need to learn to remove this stigma ourselves by not making it as big of a deal, and being selected for roles because we are the absolutely best person for the job.  What does this mean?  I believe we are responsible for making that changes by focusing all 200% of our energy in being the smartest, competitive leaders in the field... and on the field.
