Deborah Jackson

2013 Speaker

Deborah Jackson is the founder and CEO of Plum Alley, an e-commerce and crowdfunding site for women’s innovation, and a Founder of Women Innovate Mobile Accelerator, an accelerator that invests in women-founded mobile tech companies. After graduating from Columbia Business School and joining Goldman Sachs, Jackson started her finance career focusing on health care clients and moving into health-care focused internet and tech companies. Jackson’s time on Wall Street fueled her desire to see more women succeed and her experience evaluating software and technology companies, forging partnerships and raising capital were each instrumental in building the online properties she has launched in the last two years. Over the past decade, she has invested in early stage companies in the tech and healthcare fields, many of which are founded by women. Jackson’s initiatives and properties have a common goal:to champion women to become builders of technology, companies and their own wealth. @dbdj1007
