Speaking to Girls in Tech – Taiwan at 5am on starting a tech business, managing funding, and lessons learned. Thank you Jane S. for inviting me to meet your amazing community, the Meera Kaul Foundation and the Female Founders Conference for making the connection.

I am especially passionate about robotics education, the intersection of anthropology and technology, using technology to benefit under-privileged communities, and promoting more women-run businesses. I am a frequent speaker on topics related to scaling a hardware startup, crowdfunding, bootstrapping businesses, and encouraging more women to start businesses.
