As part of my series about “Lessons From Inspirational Women Leaders in Tech”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Denise DiSano, CEO and Founder of enCappture, the affordable SaaS mobile application platform that drives customer engagement for companies of all types, no matter the size. After working with companies like GameTruck, Bricks for Kidz, and Think Zero, Denise saw the need for small to medium-sized businesses to have access to the same enterprise-level software platforms that large companies have to help grow and market their businesses — while also filling the gap for women entrepreneurs and enCappture was born.
Launched in late 2019 enCappture has to date helped many SMBs increase engagement and grow their businesses by driving both customer and employee engagement. Prior to founding enCappture, in 2012, Denise co-founded Marked Private LLC and conceived Marked Private’s first engagement was platform product, Invite Bandz, connecting physical bands to partygoers’ online party portal. Invite Bandz is available at over 500 retailers, including Amazon and Party City.
Before entering the tech world Denise worked for over ten years in the Briarcliff School District, where through numerous grants she was able to bring technology into the classroom. Her efforts drove the development of the first school-wide technology curriculum. She was also an advisor and evaluator of technology and was key in fostering young female students in the STEM program. As a leader in the field of technology, her mission to not only inspire girls to create new ways to disrupt small, developing businesses with innovative technologies but also to help make programs accessible to women and girls at all ages.
