Event Details

Yoela Palkin, Baskit, Inc

Yoela is a project manager, designer, and founder on a variety of technical and creative projects in fields including mobile, application development, and marketing technologies.  

At the age of 17, Yoela entered UC Berkeley as a junior and dove into Computer Science where she first gained interest in the mobile applications space leading to the opening of her first technology company, MyEnterprise Applications.


After 3.5 years being CTO and growing a mobile development team that specialized in the creation of enterprise level applications for companies like Priceline and Groupon, MyEnterprise Applications was acquired by a top Israeli software engineering firm to grow their mobile department in the United States.


Yoela's motto has always been to create products for the 22nd century that can continue to grow with the latest technology and innovation. Yoela's latest endeavor Baskit seeks to improve the online interaction between buyer and merchant at the shopping cart in order to reduce a major problem in the online retail industry called "shopping cart abandonment".

With a diverse background in both web and mobile, Yoela continues to consult for top firms including Schulberg Media Works, based in Sausalito. With one success, one startup fail, and many projects under her belt, Yoela's new goal is to help women find entrepreneurship and take their business to the next level from MVP building to product strategy and mapping out the best financial model.
