I’m Holly and co-founder of TapInfluence, (formerly BlogFrog), a cloud-based software platform that automates influencer marketing.  I’ve spent my career helping launch start-ups in the internet, multimedia, entertainment, video, and other high-tech industries.  A few of the start-ups I’ve helped grow include online advertiser Matchlogic (acquired by Excite), internet performance tool Service Metrics (acquired by Exodus), network storage provider LeftHand Networks (acquired by HP), and Thought Equity Motion, an innovative cloud-based storage and licensing service for digital video.

I have a degree in Mathematics from Washington College and studied telecommunications at Johns Hopkins University.

I am a contributing writer on technology and marketing to various publications, an American Marketing Association “Marketer of the Year” recipient, and a blogger for The Huffington Post.  I’m on the Board of Advisors for the Deming Center for Entrepreneurship and sit on the Deming Center Women’s Council helping foster entrepreneurial and tech interest in students (especially women).  I’ve spoken at over a dozen conferences (including BlogHer, Digital Impact Conf, Blissdom, WordCamp,  TypeACon) on topics related to women and technology, entrepreneurship, marketing, social media, and building successful online communities.

I got interested in sports during college where I played varsity softball, swam competitively, and was on the diving team. In addition to entrepreneurial and tech interests, I do triathlons, open water swims and hope to someday run a full Ironman.

Thank for stopping by!  I love hearing from readers so email me any time at holly (at) tapinfluence (dot) com.
