Tracey Welson-Rossman started her career in retail management and advertising sales, learning about lead development, marketing and distribution. But what she really learned was that she’s an entrepreneur – and an activist — at heart.
With several successful ventures behind her, today she is a founder and chief marketing officer for Chariot Solutions, a Philadelphia-based software development and consulting firm, helping it to grow from 10 employees in 2002 to 50.
That’s just her day job. Welson-Rossman is also the founder and current chair of the Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference, held annually in Philadelphia. She’s a founding board member of Philadelphia Startup Leaders, a regional organization dedicated to growing technology startups, and in her spare time, she heads the nonprofit TechGirlz to help adolescent girls embrace STEM careers.
