A businesswoman with experience raising money for and investing in startup companies will be the guest speaker at e2e Wyoming’s meeting in Laramie June 15.

Robin Steele will speak Wednesday, June 15, at 5:30 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center, located at 222 S. 22nd St.

“She’s interesting because she has big corporate experience with Agilent (Technologies) and also has worked with startups,” says Jon Benson, CEO of the Wyoming Technology Business Center (WTBC). “She’s had a startup herself and invested in startups.”

Benson adds Steele will provide information on what investors are looking for when considering investing in an early-stage, technology company.

During the 1990s, Steele led an engineering team at Hewlett Packard that developed the first software available for sale over the Internet. As the general manager of Agilent Technologies, Steele managed a more than $10 million research and development budget, 150 engineers and five sites.  

After an extensive career in corporate America, Steele bought a partnership in a consulting company, which she later sold. According to her LinkedIn page, she has been president/owner of RSteele LLC for 13 years, and currently is an adjunct faculty member at Colorado State University and Colorado School of Mines.  

Steele spent much of her childhood in Wyoming. She received her bachelor’s degree in computer science, a master's degree in computer engineering and her MBA, all from the Kellogg School of Management.
