On this final episode of Season one, I share some previously unreleased interview segments with five guests. There is Pauline Koelbl, founder of AfriProspect and ShEquity, who’s primary focus is African female-led innovative startups. Pauline tells me more about the first companies ShEquity has invested in. Then Ana Maria Angarita and Isabel Brücher, both co-founders of Capacity Zurich a talent and startup incubator for refugees and migrants in Switzerland. Ana Maria and Isabel share how Capacity actually started, what makes the diversity of its team, and which process to follow if you’re interested in becoming a volunteer mentor with their entrepreneurship program. There is also Thomas Bosshard, co-owner of Oertli Instrumente, a medical device company, who tells me how his collaboration with Dr. Sanduk Ruit (a world renowned eye surgeon from Nepal) has impacted his work and that of his employees. Finally, Alessandra Patti, founder of FindYourWay coaching and assertive communication lecturer, shares the importance of self-care during the current pandemic.
