Pearls of Wisdom - Women in Tech Luncheon

The Tampa Bay Chamber presents its bi-annual Pearls of Wisdom Luncheon series.  This luncheon focuses on Women in Tampa's burgeoning tech scene.  Today's speaker, Carolyn Eagen, Founder and CEO of Kinstak headquartered in Tampa, developed this private cloud storage company for military members and their families.   Her background is in GTM strategy, cloud technologies, data and analytics, data visualization, and data storytelling. Her passion for Kinstak stemmed from her family experiences of being adopted and her mother’s unexpected passing away at 24 years old. The lack of an easy way to store and organize her family’s digital legacy has driven her and Kinstak’s all-star technical team to build a simple way to store and automatically organize family files and photos into a private digital legacy solution. She has over 20 years of professional experience in leading top-performing teams globally with award-winning-record-breaking results.

Kinstak has been selected and is currently participating in the National Science Foundations I-Corp Program and has since launched their first version released to a cohort of military members and their families for feedback and next-generation product development. Kinstak’s next launch is planned for the Summer of 2022 near strategic military bases for military members and their families located in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and California.
