What are your hopes for the next generation of women in tech?
My hope is to see more funding allocated towards women founders in tech and access to accessible alternative funding options. Plus, I'd like to see streamlined pathways to secure market access and early adopters.
What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The greatest advice is to seek alternative funding options (i.e., nondilutive grants) while building a company and to maintain an abundance mindset as a founder.
