The industry celebrated the year’s Top Women in the Digital industry in New York City on Tuesday, March 21.

New York, NY – The honorees of the 2017 Cynopsis Top Women in Digital were honored at a sold-out breakfast sponsored by FreeWheel in New York City on Tuesday, March 21. The third annual award program celebrated the leaders and innovators steering a fast-paced industry to new heights.

In addition to all the inspiring speeches, Elizabeth Spiers, founder of the creative and research firm Insurrection and founder of Gawker, was the morning’s keynote. “Women are evaluated on performance, while men are evaluated on potential,” Spiers noted, making the point that when it comes to quantitative measurement, women come out winners.

Catalyst’s Kapil Desai judges AgTech & Food Tech pitch competition at Forbes Mixing Bowl event

Forbes and The Mixing Bowl gathered 140 thought leaders, investors and industry executives to explore how information technology can be harnessed to solve challenges in food and agriculture. Participants engaged in a substantive dialogue on the role of technology in “changing food & farming at scale” and the “fight for the fork”. These themes were explored through a series of moderated discussions, the Blender Business Pitch competition – judged in part by Catalyst’s Kapil Desai – and interactive breakout sessions.
