Session: Be a circle in a world of squares
I'll share my story and how all the winding roads and saying yes to opportunities (against my better judgement) lead me to where I am today. Starting out as an inventor and ML-geek (before it was cool), then a product manager in big and small companies, followed by a unicorn journey. My most recent game-changer was to shift to a VC role. I will particularly focus on when I struggled with 'the glass ceiling' and how I found my way - with hopes that it will inspire other brave young women to make their journeys happen!
- Be fearless when opportunity presents itself
- Be a circle in a world of squares
- There is no failure - you either win or you learn
- Pay it forward
