Grappone to discuss her strategy across all ventures which is to start small, evaluate and revise

The March New Hampshire Tech Alliance TechWomen Power Breakfast will feature Allison Grappone and how she applies the concept of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) across several initiatives she has spearheaded over her career in both the technology and nonprofit worlds. The March Power Breakfast will be on Wednesday the 13th from 7:30 to 9 am at the Manchester Country Club, 180 South River Road in Bedford.

“For two decades, Allison has focused on working both smart and hard to build and grow organizations in several sectors. Her diverse experience and strong commitment to the agile principles of delivering the MVP that allows you to engage potential customers and advance product development should resonate with our attendees. We’re excited to hear her share her experiences using agile concepts to launch new ideas,” said Melissa Jurkoic, chair of the TechWomen Power Breakfast committee.

Allison Grappone was recently promoted to partner and vice president of marketing at Ascendle, where she has been working for nearly four years. Before joining Ascendle, Grappone founded Nearby Registry in 2012, an e-commerce startup supporting local economies and expanded the business into communities across the country. She sold the business to a Seattle company in 2015. She played a role in the formative years of the Entrepreneurs Foundation of New Hampshire and the Governor’s Live Free and Start Council, focusing her efforts on increasing the number of women investors and tech experts in New Hampshire. Grappone holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from the University of New Hampshire and an MBA from Pinchot Programs at Presidio Graduate School.
