Tech Leader Talk

Dec 1, 2022

Looking for tips from an experienced tech startup leader?

On today’s episode, I am talking with Joyce Durst.

Joyce is the CEO and co-Founder of Growth Acceleration Partners (referred to as “GAP”).  GAP is a strategic technology solutions partner and a leader in digital transformation consulting.

When Joyce was a kid, she refused to accept the belief that “girls don’t do math” and kids from her small hometown don’t pursue college degrees.  Joyce overcame both of those mindsets and earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Texas A&M University.

Joyce started her career at IBM and moved into Executive roles at multiple companies before founding Growth Acceleration Partners.

Joyce is a sought-after speaker on the topics of leadership and women in business.

“I realized that if I really wanted to have impact on a company’s direction and on the lives of other people, I would need to become a CEO.” – Joyce Durst
