And just like that Twin Cities Startup Week begins to wind down. Not without a couple more parties, though. The TCSW Awards Ceremony and Closing Celebration will take place on Wednesday, October 16, at 6 p.m. Nancy Lyons, founder of Clockwork, will take the stage at the Science Museum of Minnesota as emcee to introduce finalists for seven awards. The team from The Coven, last year’s Emerging Startup Award Winner, will join her to present the awards to the winners.
We are excited to have Nancy Lyons as this year’s Emcee. Nancy has been locally and nationally recognized for her role as owner and CEO of Clockwork. She is co-author of “Interactive Project Management: Pixels, People, and Process” (New Riders, 2012) and author of the upcoming “Work Like a Boss.”
She serves as the Chair Emeritus of the National Board of Directors of the Family Equality Council, is on the Board of Trustees at Minnesota Public Radio, sits on the Minnesota Governor’s Blue Ribbon Council on Information Technology, and the board of the Minnesota Women’s Economic Round Table. She is also a long-time member of the Women’s Presidents Organization and was the Emcee for an audience of 100,000 people for the Women’s March MN in 2017.
The Coven is a collaborative community and co-working space designed with women, non-binary and trans people in mind. They are a catalyst for personal and professional transformation. They hold space for the magic women, non-binary and trans folks create when they come together as their whole-selves. The Coven team was the award recipients for the 2018 Emerging Startup Award. This year they are taking the stage again with their expanded team to present awards to seven winners in beautiful St. Paul where they are also opening their second co-working space.
