Lisa Falzone is the 29-year-old CEO and co-founder of iPad point of sale (POS Systems) company Revel Systems. A graduate of Stanford University, Lisa has been pivotal in turning the often “old school” perception of POS on its head. She has raised over $115 million in funding for Revel and the company currently has more than 250 employees worldwide. The iPad POS system that Lisa co-created regularly beats out established competitors such as MICROS Systems/Oracle, NCR and Aloha, and has sold hundreds of millions of units since it came out of beta in 2011. Lisa’s achievements as a young female entrepreneur have been recognized through numerous prestigious awards such as Forbes ’30 Under 30’, Business Insiders “30 Most Important Women Under 30 In Tech” and San Francisco Business Times ’40 Under 40.’
Carol Grunberg, head of partner management for Google Payments and W. net board member, will conduct an informal “fireside chat” with Falzone. A spirited dialog will cover how Falzone got started in business, her role as a disruptor in the payments space, the path she’s taken to obtain funding, and what it’s like to be a woman in the male-dominated payments industry and Silicon Valley startup worlds, among other topics.
