Strands of Genius: Voices of Women in Tech are Still Being Erased, Texting With Just Your Mind, Photography to Give the Marginalized a Voice

Guest curated by Lisa Marrone

This year we’re aiming to highlight 50 creative thinkers that have inspired us, by giving them the opportunity to guest curate this newsletter, Strands of Genius. Lisa is the founder and CEO of Revel.

:: A BIT MORE ABOUT GUEST CURATOR, Lisa Marrone ::

LOCATION: San Francisco, CA
PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT: Revel

I'm Lisa Marrone, the co-founder of Revel, an online community for women 40 and above. Founded in 2019, last year Fast Company named Revel one of the 10 Most Innovative Social Media Companies of 2020. 

My partner, Alexa Wahr, and I founded Revel after I noticed working in Venture Capital that I was only hearing pitches from young people for young people and asked what can technology do for older adults?

Hope you enjoy today’s links!

Editor’s Note (Team Genius Steals): We were introduced to Lisa from a Strands reader and absolutely love what she and Revel are creating. Thank you for being here, Lisa!

My current favorite Revel event is called Eye Candy: Down the Rabbit Hole of Visual Wonders (And if you're not yourself a woman - please share!)

It's called Genius Steals because we believe ideas are new combinations and that nothing can come from nothingBut copying is lazy. We believe the best way to innovate is to look at the best of that which came before and combine those elements into new solutions. 

Co-Founders Faris & Rosie are award-winning strategists and creative directors, writers, consultants and public speakers who have been living on the road/runway since March 2013, working with companies all over the world. Our Director of Operations is nomadic like us, our accounting team is based out of Washington, our company is registered in Tennessee, and our collaborators are all over the world. Being nomadic allows us to go wherever clients need us to be, and to be inspired by the world in between.
