On April 7-8, there was a two-day intensive workshop where 200 female startup founders gathered to learn, pitch, get inspired and mingled with other entrepreneurs, investors, and mentors. It was the second annual Project Entrepreneur Intensive sponsored by UBS and the Rent the Runway Foundation. I was selected as one of 200 and participated in it.

It was this summer when I met Christine first time, she was a guest speaker invited to Startup52, an accelerator program we were in. She was incredibly powerful, incredibly generous to share hacks and tips she learned through her own startup experience, her speech was very much to-the-point and easy to understand even when the topic was conceptional.
