Augment Celebrates Women in the Venture Community

The evening was not just about toasting to achievements but also deeply reflecting on the journeys that have brought us here. It was a gathering illuminated by the stories, challenges, and triumphs of women who are reshaping the landscape of entrepreneurship and investment.

Special thanks to our featured guests Melissa (Missy) Spickler, Chris Sing and Alison Accavitti from Rivet Work, who left us all inspired with their thoughtful remarks.
