For Women Launching Start-ups: Inspire the Next Generation

on Tuesday, Jul. 23rd

Last week, Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, Founder and CEO of Joyus; Kelsey Falter, Founder and CEO of Poptip; and Heather Marie, Founder and CEO of 72Lux, were awarded Next Generation Awards from L’Oreal.

In a Skype interview with Tech Crunch, when asked about the issues facing women start-up entrepreneurs, the three talked about young girls in school being discouraged from pursuing tech, the lack of female role models in the field, and the importance of parental support.

“My mom gave me a domain name for my 8th birthday and I attempted to go the website and there was nothing there. The trick was, I had to build what was going to be on there. So just as parents give their children Legos or building blocks, I think as children grow older it’s really important for parents to encourage them to explore tech.”- Kelsey Falter

Props to Techcrunch for the Interview:
