S2 001: Hélène Guillaume, founder of Wild.AI. Femtech, Sports, Female Representation 🏄🏽♀️🚴🏼♀️
Ultra-marathoner, ice-swimmer and surfer Hélène Guillame founded Wild.AI to help women to train, eat and recover across all stages of their menstrual cycle and through all stages of life. A former quant in a Hedge fund and a data scientist, Hélène is bringing finance, data and AI skills to healthtech. In this podcast, we discuss how women are not represented equally in sports and scientific research. We touch on how women and not small men and how Wild.AI were the first company to spearhead research into the impact of covid19 vaccines on women’s menstrual cycles. We hear how Hélène famously pitched on Dragon’s Den (UK equivalent of shark tank) and turned down 2 investment offers from the dragons. Hélène is an incredible female founder and I’m a proud angel investor in Wild.AI.
