What are your hopes for the next generation of women in tech?
I hope that with more access to opportunities and funding, more girls will grow up having female role models and mentors in traditionally male-dominated industries like tech, which will continue to shift the scales towards more gender equality in the space.
What’s the greatest piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Hire missionaries, not mercenaries. The first ten people you hire will define the culture of your entire company; it is critical you get those right.
