The EntreprenHer Show with Denise DiSano, CEO/Co-Founder of Marked Private
Welcome to the EntreprenHer Show. Today’s guest is Denise DiSano, CEO/Co-Founder of Marked Private
I am Heidi Richards Mooney, Founder of Women in Ecommerce & host of The EnterprenHer Show.
It is my pleasure to bring you today’s program
Let me tell you about Denise DiSano
Denise has a deep understanding of technology and product development. She co-founded Marked Private LLC and conceived Marked Private’s first engagement platform product, Invite Bandz, physical bands connected to a partygoer’s online party portal. Invite Bandz are available at over 500 retailers, including Amazon and Party City.
After working with companies like GameTruck, Bricks for Kidz, and Think Zero she saw the need for small to medium-sized businesses to have access to the same enterprise-level software platforms that large companies have at their disposal to help grow and market their businesses. This passion for making technology accessible to all and helping fellow women-owned businesses lead Denise to develop enCappture, an affordable SaaS mobile application platform that drives customer engagement for companies of all types, no matter the size.
Prior to Marked Private, Denise worked as an educator for over ten years in the Briarcliff School District, where due to her passion for technology, she applied for numerous grants to bring technology into the classroom and drove the development of the first school-wide technology curriculum. She also represented her district as an advisor and evaluator of technology integration across all curriculum areas and was key in fostering young female students in the STEM program. As one of the few women leaders in the field of technology, Denise has made it her mission to not only inspire girls to create new ways to disrupt small, developing businesses with innovative technologies but also to help make programs accessible to make it happen.
In this interview, Denise answered the following questions:
How did you first use technology as a NY public school teacher in Westchester?
How did you transition from school teacher to head of an NYC tech firm?
