Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
Apart from Kaitek, I co-founded a company that focuses on apps that improve human interaction, and another one that aims to bring scientific equipment to sites that need biochemical testing. During my stay in Singularity University, I co-founded Xanana, an NGO focused on supporting female entrepreneurs creating disruptive innovation in developing countries. My partner for this venture is Shiza Shahid, who co-founded the Malala Fund.
I serve as a freelance consultant in innovation and entrepreneurship, and I have also mentored many projects, ranging from handcrafted luxe leather goods to web platforms that supply independent laboratories with necessary equipment.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
We have many mentors from different areas, with special attention to biotech, fishing and investment. But the coolest mentor we have happens to be the scientist who invented our competition, and whom after internal skirmishes decided she would find somebody capable of overcoming the faults in her own tech. She found us, and decided to support us in every way she can. Needless to say, we are immensely honored.
