Joanne Lang

2013 Speaker

Joanne Lang is the CEO of AboutOne, an online organizer that not only replaces the file cabinets, notebooks, and various tools that families use to store household information, but also saves time by automatically using family members’ existing contacts and calendar apps to organize that information so it’s useful and readily available.  A former software company executive specializing in cloud technology, Lang recognized that while she had Facebook for friends and LinkedIn for business, there was nothing in the middle to help manage her home life. She designed AboutOne, based on her direct experiences as the mother of four children.  Since launching first on stage at VentureBeat’s DEMO Spring 2011, Lang was named a Forbes Top Ten Female Entrepreneurs to Watch, won the StartupNation and the Startup Princess competitions, received seed funding from Ben Franklin SEP, Series A from Golden Seeds and MAG and was accepted to the Astia portfolio and DreamIt Ventures.
