“Since the early days of Jenzy, we have been focused on providing parents the simplest and most convenient way to shop for their kids’ shoes."

Jenzy, a foot-sizing and ecommerce app that helps parents purchase properly fitting footwear for young children (ages 0-6) online, today announced that one of its co-founders, Eve Ackerley, will be a panelist at Philly Music Fest and Rec Philly’s TECH Tour on September 28, 2018. The “Women-Rockstars” panel is the third stop on the music tour and will take place at 1776 in West Philadelphia from 4:30-6:30pm. Ms. Ackerley; Johanna Richardson of Meetup Pro; and Felicite Moorman, CEO at STRATIS IoT and BuLogics, will serve as panelists on the tour, discussing how women are using technology to disrupt various industries and the lessons they have learned along the way.

The inaugural day-long event will bring together the art and technology communities of Philadelphia to explore important topics at the intersection of culture and innovation. Each stop along the tour features discussions from prominent thought leaders, as well as performances by burgeoning local artists.

“I am thrilled to be selected to speak at this unique event alongside Tracey, Johanna and Felicite – three women who are trailblazers in the tech world and role models to both me and my co-founder, Carolyn Horner,” said Eve Ackerley. “Since the early days of Jenzy, we have been focused on providing parents the simplest and most convenient way to shop for their kids’ shoes. This has required the creation and utilization of various tech-based solutions which have delivered valuable lessons about leveraging tech and data that we look forward to sharing with attendees.”

Jenzy is a Philadelphia-based foot-sizing and ecommerce technology startup that sizes young children’s feet through its app, revolutionizing the way parents shop for their kids’ shoes. Jenzy’s goal is to have all children in proper-fitting and developmentally appropriate shoes, setting them on the path for healthy feet and healthy lives. The idea for the company came about when Eve and Carolyn learned that 70 percent of kids are wearing the wrong shoe size, often because of growth spurts and sizing variability between brands.

“Eve and Carolyn stood out as true innovators in an industry that hasn’t seen change since shoe shopping became available online,” explained Tracey Welson-Rossman, CMO, Chariot Solutions. “What impressed me the most about them is their humbleness and ability to recognize the limitations they’re up against in the tech world. I’m looking forward to hearing Eve’s perspective on the biggest challenges she and Carolyn have had along the way in the tech world and what lessons they have learned to overcome them.”
