A Place Where Women In Tech Can Be Cultivated, Educated, and Celebrated.

Welcome To FemTech Nation

Ladies, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to FemTech Nation!  FemTech Nation is a community with a mission to motivate and inspire women to exceed their potential and accomplish amazing feats as professionals and entrepreneurs in technology. My name is Candace Mitchell and I’m the founder of FemTech Nation.  Out of my burning desire to continuously propel women beyond their perceived limitations, Femtech Nation was created to further my mission to advance women both personally and professionally through my experiences, successes, lessons learned and resources.


As the CEO and Co-Founder of beauty-tech company Myavana, I’ve been able to accomplish feats that still amaze me!  So far, I’ve been named as Women’s Wear Daily’s Top 50 Beauty Innovators Under 40, 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and BET’s Next In Class STEM Award Winner. My company has received numerous media features including CNN, Headline News, BuzzFeed, ‘The Real’ daytime talk show, Marie Claire Magazine, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry show, ESSENCE magazine, Ebony Magazine, Black Enterprise, and Business Insider to name a few. I’ve was also one of the first entrepreneurs chosen for the Sephora Accelerate program. Currently, serving as an Entrepreneur-In-Residence for Ascend2020 Atlanta-- a Georgia-based technology startup and small business support ecosystem for minority-led companies-- I desire to not only excel personally but to take all of my experiences to help other women in tech to excel as well.


That being said, I hope you would allow me to be apart of your success team as I, along with some of my fellow tech sisters who are CRUSHING IT, want to see you WIN, too!  Please join us as we collectively make FemTech Nation the ultimate go-to destination where women are CULTIVATED, EDUCATED and CELEBRATED!
