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.

I was so impressed – not only the caliber of the event and its speakers, but the conference attendees I was meeting on the floor – the diversity, ambition and products of the women I met were inspiring. Below are a few of the pictures I took from the conference.

Please tag people you know on the Women 2.0 Facebook albums here and here.

I started volunteering for Women 2.0 by shooting Founder Friday events in San Francisco and even made a Founder Friday video reel.
