Roles:
Co-Founder, CEO & Chairman

The Startup:
In 1998, Peter joined Kristine Hanna to co-found GirlGeeks as a multi-media exploration of women in computing. The company's social venture mission became "to empower women to explore and become who they want to be through information technology - worldwide."

While Peter was CEO, GirlGeeks.com's web traffic, community growth and press interest were so impressive that acquisition overtures ensued, and smart, supportive Silicon Valley venture capital was raised. Strategic partnerships with MSN, Real Media, iVillage, Women.com, Akamai, TalkCity and FatBrain and COMDEX blossomed.

As Chairman, the company was positioned for merger/acqusition in the e-recruiting industry as a career success site for professional women in technology with a clear path to profitability. After the tech market crash, GirlGeeks.com morphed into GirlGeeks.org, a non-profit program operated by the Bay Area Video Coalion -- BAVC.org. Thanks to the generous support of the Markle Foundation, GirlGeeks.org now continues to operate as a nonprofit educational community resource for all girls and women interested in technology.
