Lida has proven experience of 10+ years in initiating, leading, and completing projects in Australia, Bénin, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Malawi, Switzerland, the UAE, UK, and USA. In short, she has lived and worked on all continents (though still awaiting an invitation from Antarctica :D). She speaks 3 languages well (and another 3 poorly). Initiatives and teams that she has led have done amazing things, ranging from building and launching a national incubator to winning international competitions, such as the Google Startup Battle award out of 1000+ teams.
She also advises WEST (Women Entering and Staying in Tech), and coaches through Braven, which has a unique partnership model with universities, employers, and philanthropists. Lida looks forward to mentoring at this event for the third time!
