Jen Consalvo is Co-Founder and COO of the tech-focused media company, Tech Cocktail, as well as the Founder of Thankfulfor, an online gratitude journal community. She has worked in product development for over a decade, leading large and small teams in a range of product areas such as digital imaging, community & social platforms and personalization. The majority of her career was at AOL, planning and building products used by millions of people globally.
Her deep network across the global technology community enabled her to introduce many entrepreneurs to AOL resulting in interesting new relationships and in some cases, multi-million dollar acquisitions. The most enjoyable part of her role was working together to find areas of potential partnership with these young companies.
Consalvo is also co-producer of Digital Capital Week, a week-long festival in Washington DC focused on technology, innovation and all things digital in our nation’s capital.

Outside of the tech world, photography, travel and health are her passions. Jen’s photography has been published in several publications and her book, Love Your Photos: A Simple Guide To Photographic Happiness is available for download.
