What It’s Really Like To Launch A Socially Conscious Business

In a nutshell, my job involves… challenging the status quo, whether that means persuading people of the benefits of a food-sharing app, unlocking a slice of the paltry one per cent of all venture-capital investment that went to female-founded company in 2018, or building a remote-first business, I’m always doing things differently. It’s fun but exhausting.
