Empowering Women To Be Future Leaders In Tech

Trishla, Maleeha, and Arpita

“I think one of the big challenges is actually cultivating beginners’ minds and making sure you’re still open to the world and continue to see new things. You can actually get jaded. You can stop seeing things that are new. You can start fearing failure. Those are the things an entrepreneur needs—an open mind and the ability to see the world with new eyes.” – Caterina FakeCo-Founder of Flickr and Hunch
