With all the attention of start-ups going in the big cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles or New York City - Colleen Jenkins has found her niche in St. Louis with PluggedIn.

She has created a customized technology platform as a service as a software. During her days leading Talent Acquisition for the VC firm, Cultivation Capital, she realized that early stage start ups do not have the time or help finding top talent. Thus, she took her entrepreneur skills to work and started PluggedIn.

Entrepreneurship is nothing new to Colleen. In May 2014, she founded and launched CoderGirl, an all-women’s coding meet-up and training program and even started a music company way back in the day called, Coma Gun Music. The point is she has hustle and can ball with the best of them.
