Leslie Bradshaw, President, COO, and Co-Founder of JESS3 joins Google hosts Megan Smith and Betsy Masiello for "Google Developers Live Presents: Women Techmakers" on Nov. 5th @ 2:30 p.m. (PST). "Women Techmakers" is a five-episode series "highlighting women in the technical space who are fearlessly innovating, honing technical expertise, and testing the boundaries of technology." Leslie's appearance on the first episode will feature a discussion of her experience growing a design business from two employees to a transnational operation.
Notes Shasta Darlington of CNN: "They are an exclusive group of globe-trotting Internet investors, startup founders and tech junkies. Or you can just call them 'Geeks on a Plane.'" JESS3's Founder and CEO was one of said "geeks" who not only met with numerous entrepreneurs on the trip and throughout South America, but he also served as the trip's executive creative director where he lead the development of the trip's official comic book / "zine" and collateral. Look closely and you can see his signature JESS3 tee in CNN's shots of the trip!
The cloud computing industry event of the year, Dreamforce '11 (#DF11), kicks-off next month. To celebrate, we partnered once again with Eloqua to create an infographic that gives a visual history of the event.
JESS3 COO, Co-Founder, and President Leslie Bradshaw discusses the rise of women entrepreneurs with Ellie Cachette of The Huffington Post. One statistic sates that in the last 15 years alone women-owned businesses have increased by 54 percent, reaching over 8.3 million total in the United States. Bradshaw, a driving force behind the women business owner movement says, "Entrepreneurship is the next natural step for women. We've reached parity in higher education. We are no longer facing an overt, sexist glass ceiling in the management ranks. Now, it is time for us to launch and grow businesses."
To accompany Leslie Bradshaw's first article on Forbes, "Why Women Having a Seat At The Table Is Not Enough," and underscore the disparity between the leadership roles men hold as compared to women, JESS3's design team crafted a custom-infographic, displaying the percentages as male and female silhouettes sitting on an actual chair.
JESS3 worked closely with foursquare to build a custom map visualization of Election Day check-ins that access over 108,000 official polling locations thanks to the Voting Information Project (Google x The Pew Center on the States).
Soon after the ICANN announced the release of new internet extensions becoming available, The Washington Post tapped JESS3 to illustrate an article outlining the possibilities of corporations snatching up universal terms, like ."love" - but who would that term belong to? The Washington Post has invited readers to share their thoughts via Twitter using the #icannlove hashtag.
To raise awareness of the launch of its free mobile application, where users can track the latest UN news, make donations and more, the United Nations Foundation turned to the JESS3 team to create a concise and informative thirty-second video.
