Xapnik’s the creation of tech veteran, Kirsten Lambertsen. It was inspired by the members of an informal community she belongs to in NYC called the Danger Ladies, a collection of women in tech and startups who banded together to boost each other’s careers and lives.
The Danger Ladies demonstrated to Lambertsen the power of community for even a small group of like minded people. She wanted to make it easier for the Danger Ladies to always be there for each other online, so she built Xapnik.
