Sheila Marcelo, CEO and founder of Care.com, is a dynamic speaker and one women entrepreneurs should view as a role model. At Vator Splash NY, Marcelo - straight from landing at the airport from a trip in the UK - gave her keynote speech about lessons starting and scaling her business, Care.com.

Marcelo, who is a mother of two, has raised more than $100 million for her service. And we hear may be teeing up for an IPO sometime soon. Watch Marcelo's keynote speech and be inspired. 

Splash is a startup event and competition, where seasoned CEOs and founders of fast-growing tech companies, give TED-like speeches about their lessons and advice. At our next Splash event, held in San Francisco, you'll hear from Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, which has raised $250 million in funding and has recently been valued at $1-plus billion, as well as Renaud Laplanche, founder and CEO of Lending Club, which has raised some $100 million and is also valued at well north of $500 million.
