The 2012 Women 2.0 PITCH Conference & Competition on Valentine’s Day was amazing – the agenda and speaker lineup made me realize it was something I had to be at.
I brought my camera to the PITCH Conference on Tuesday to shoot candids at the event. But I kept stopping – to speak to the amazing women entrepreneurs I was meeting.
Each person that I spoke to or I shot for the Sit With Me campaign had their own startup – and would show me what they were working on their smartphones.

Some women start companies. Other women run corporations. And then there are women like Debbie Landa, founder of Dealmaker Media who bring them together.

“It’s great, isn’t it?” she asked, welcoming me inside.
