Founder & Women In Tech

Hi! I'm Mariane Bekker, a tech executive with over a decade of experience building high-performing engineering teams at leading startups such as New Relic and Mindbody. I've led engineering through 5 acquisitions and 1 IPO.


I'm passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion in the tech industry and helping founders succeed. That's why I founded Upward Recruiting and Founders Bay. 


With Founders Bay, we incubate AI-powered startups and help them build their MVP from the grounds up.

With Upward Recruiting, we work with companies to help them hire more women engineers.

I also run the biggest most active community of tech female founders in the Bay Area called Women Founders Bay
