AUGUST FEATURED MENTOR: Rachel Mertensmeyer, CEO & Co-Founder of RexPay

 

Rachel Mertensmeyer has long been captivated by understanding the consumer mindset and making people’s lives better with product innovation. She has a decade of marketing management experience in Fortune 100 companies including Unilever and Avon in New York and BBDO and WPP in Shanghai. Rachel’s first professional opportunity supported her entrepreneurial nature as she was tasked with the ground floor development of sales distribution in Eastern Asia for an American wine company. In 2016, while living in New York City, Rachel experienced medical bill mayhem personally. This experience spurred her to apply her consumer product innovation background to create a better medical payments solution for patients.


SESSION DESCRIPTION:

 

Rachel will share stories and learnings from her personal experiences. She will touch on her thoughts on working in the corporate world vs. a small startup company. The discussion will also include insights on how to launch a startup! 

 

It is hard to advance one’s career in tech, but we want to shift that conversation and talk about how we can make it easier.

 

WE'LL TALK ABOUT:

- What you can do on any day, in life or at work, to make it easier for you and others

- How to promote positive change

- How to get involved
