Financial Fireside Chat of the Month With … Tech Entrepreneur Genevieve Thiers

Genevieve Head ShotEntrepreneur, tech star, mother—Genevieve Thiers wears many hats.

A power player in the Chicago tech scene, Thiers, 37, is perhaps best known for launching Sittercity.com, a service that’s connected thousands of child care providers with families since 2001.

Thanks to the massive success she’s enjoyed since, Thiers now lives by the credo that accomplished women in tech should help up-and-comers in the field—and she's putting her money where her mouth is: She recently launched High Note Enterprises, a $150,000 investment fund that supports female entrepreneurs focused on solving problems for other women.

Business aside, Thiers is also a trained opera singer who splits her time between working, raising her 3-year-old twin boys, and singing her heart out at iconic venues like Carnegie Hall.

We caught up with Thiers for a chat about life, money—and plenty in between.
