Title: "Shop local! The opportunities and challenges of serving the local business community"

Bio: Depending on how you count them, Yiftee is Donna’s 3rd or 19th startup. Having spent a career in high tech marketing, Yiftee brings that expertise to empower shops and restaurants with the tools big retailers use to engage their customers online and mobile – for a fraction of the time and money. Donna is also a former partner of a top tier venture capital firm, teaches marketing to engineers and entrepreneurs at Stanford University, took one startup from scratch to IPO, and sold another. She was named one of the 2014 Top 10 Women to Watch in Tech by Inc. Magazine in April 2014. Donna is a frequent speaker on the topic of entrepreneurship and investment, with recent engagements at Money2020, Harvard Business School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Stanford School of Engineering and the Apple Store in Soho, NYC. Donna holds a B.S. in Industrial Engineering with Distinction from Stanford University and a Harvard MBA.
