Hannah Fleishman is a Marketing Manager at Hubspot.
Why did you decide to sponsor SGO?
HubSpot has been a supporter of SGO from the very beginning and we’ve always admired the motivation and energy behind the organization’s mission. We decided to become a sponsor to provide all the help we can to grow the SGO community because the more support we can give to Boston’s women in tech, the stronger and smarter our tech industry will become.
What has your She+ Geeks Out experience been like?
It has been great to have a community of women in tech to mingle with, bounce ideas off of, and feel connected to. From an attendee perspective, HubSpotters have enjoyed the office “fieldtrips” and learning about what other female powerhouses in Boston are working on. As a sponsor, we feel lucky to be a part of SGO and are thrilled that HubSpot is a resource for women looking to grow their careers in technology.
Have you received any feedback from your employees about the company’s involvement with SGO?
Our employees, particularly on our product and engineering team, were thrilled to hear HubSpot became a sponsor of SGO. Many employees have attended multiple SGO events and have said they’re happy to have a stronger relationship with the community now and to be able to attend the events together.
What do you geek out about?
HubSpot geeks out about marketing, product management, new technologies in software engineering, and career growth.
How do you see Boston/Cambridge as an important community for supporting women in tech?
Communities like SGO help us create an image of Boston and Cambridge as a supportive environment for women in tech with lots of opportunities for growth. Seeing events get booked so quickly shows that there is strong interest locally from ladies in tech to get further involved. HubSpot loves being able to refer to this community to students and employees who are considering moving to New England.
