PS27 Female Founders Forum announces Care.com Founder as Keynote Speaker

February 14th, 2024 · Leave a Comment

PS27 is pleased to announce Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Co-founder of Ohai.ai and founder and former CEO of Care.com, as the keynote speaker at the PS27 Female Founders Forum.

Marcelo is one of fewer than 30 women ever to lead a startup company to an IPO. The event takes place on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2024, at the University of North Florida. The program also includes a pitch competition where five founders compete live on stage for a $250,000* capital investment.

As a Filipino-American and one of the most accomplished women in tech, Marcelo will share her journey of building Care.com into a $500 million company and creating her new venture Ohai.ai, a platform leveraging AI to revolutionize the approach to caregiving and improve the lives of families.

“Balancing family and career has been an ongoing challenge in my life,” said Lirio Marcelo, Co-founder and CEO of Ohai.ai. “These experiences inspired me to establish Care.com with an exceptional team, but we still couldn’t fully address the cognitive burdens that families face, impacting their overall well-being, their family’s nutrition, and the daily stress that puts a strain on the entire family’s mental health. Now, with Ohai.ai, my commitment to making a positive impact on families globally has never been stronger. I look forward to sharing my journey with the PS27 Female Founders Forum on such a special day honoring the achievements of women.”

The PS27 Female Founders Forum is presented by VyStar Credit Union.

The largest celebration of International Women’s Day in Florida, the PS27 Female Founders Forum brings together entrepreneurs, business leaders, and students to be inspired by remarkable women on stage who have achieved their dreams.
