From Design Director to CEO & Founder of Girls’ Night In – Alisha RamosFeatured
I'm the the Founder and CEO of Girls' Night In (GNI), a new self-care company helping women relax, recharge, and cultivate community through monthly book clubs, events, and a Friday newsletter that reaches over 150,000+ women across the globe. GNI raised its first round of venture capital funding in 2018.Prior to founding GNI, I worked in the technology industry as a designer and engineer. I served as a Design Director at Vox Media, helping build products and platforms for millions of passionate readers. I also worked as a design lead on Healthcare.gov with Nava, a public benefit corporation building better government services. One of my passions is helping women of color and underrepresented people pursue careers in technology, and I've previously given talks on inclusivity, diversity, and privilege in tech. I graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Sociology and History, and live in Washington, D.C..Ask me about taking a side hustle into a full-time gig, fundraising and pitching investors, management and building an early team, building a community and brand people care about, launching a newsletter or other editorial product, jumping into entrepreneurship from a product design background, or anything else!
