Patti Rogers

2014 Speaker

Patti Rogers is founder and CEO of Rallyhood. An Austin, Texas native, Rogers founded Rallyhood in the spring of 2012, following a successful battle with breast cancer and the related outpouring of kindness from her community. From this kindness was born Rallyhood’s inspiration, to create a platform that makes it easier to bring people together around a purpose, event, or common cause. Her vision was to blend the best of both social apps and productivity tools, eliminate communication clutter, and to ease group coordination struggles that strain our individual lives. Rallyhood’s web and mobile platform now empowers more than 7,000 communities and is changing the way everyday groups (teams, classes, clubs, committees, families, and friends supporting friends) and social-good organizations like Girl Scouts, Komen, and Dell Children’s Medical Center engage with purpose. Rallyhood also partners with hospitals and care providers to deliver a life-enriching service to empower patients and their communities through treatment and recovery. She serves on the steering committee of [email protected], served on the boards and/or led committees with St. Gabriel’s Catholic School, the YMCA of Metropolitan Austin, the State Theater and Creative Women of Austin. Rogers is a graduate of the University of Texas, Austin. She began her college career at the University of Hawaii where she swam competitvely – a sport in which she continued to compete for 15 years as a Division 1 Athlete. @rallyhood
