Stacy Brown-Philpot is a trailblazer of Silicon Valley, where she is one of the few black female executives. She’s also the CEO of the chore outsourcing app TaskRabbit, now launching in Canada, and has worked at esteemed companies such as Google and Goldman Sachs. Stacy is a champion of diversity, using her Detroit roots to inspire her to create the Black Googler Network, and even sits on the board of Black Girls CODE, an organization that reaches underrepresented communities to teach young girls programming skills. Finally, she’s a graduate of Stanford University, a mom to two young daughters, and a member of Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list since 2015.
Yeah, she’s pretty incredible.
Her company, TaskRabbit, is an online startup that tackles everyday chores by outsourcing work to “taskers”, for such jobs as cleaning the oven, vacuuming the house, or even assembling that tedious IKEA furniture. In fact, Stacy even took up the tasks herself when she went undercover on her app to learn more about her user’s experience.
