Meet Kerry and Ashlee of Mixtroz
Kerry Schrader and Ashlee Ammons are a dynamic mother/daughter duo who created Mixtroz, an app that helps make meeting people at networking events easier.
They’ve been blazing trails in the male-dominated startup space and most recently won $100,000 in the Rise of the Rest Tour, a venture capital program that invests in the most promising companies located outside of Silicon Valley.
Though they don’t have formal tech backgrounds, the two women have tons of real-world experience. Ashlee was LeBron James’ first intern, as well as an events producer for big names such as Jay-Z, Coca-Cola, Leonardo DiCaprio and Oprah Winfrey. Her mom, Kerry, has an equally impressive resume, working more than 25 years for major companies that include Ford and Sears Holding Corporation.
