Bettina Hein Minisode
Bettina Hein is a serial technology entrepreneur now remaking what we know of the web into its newer version, a decentralized 3.0 version where we own and control our own data. CEO and founder of HelloYellow, and SVOX and Pixability before, Bettina talks about what it takes for women to play bigger to launch moonshots and why, just like in childbirth, it helps not to know or understand all the challenges before you take the leap.
What does it take to launch a moonshot?
We hear all about male entrepreneurs with big dreams, yet you rarely hear about women like Bettina Hein who are playing big in the tech space or other sectors.
Is it that we tend to play smaller?
It may just be that we succeed in silence.
Bettina for her part is busy reinventing the web as we know it as CEO and founder of Hello Yellow. Her third company, it is focused on solutions in the Web 3.0 space.
Web 3.0 combines 5G, AI, VR/AR enabling us to both map our physical world into virtual space AND superimpose a digital layer onto our physical environments – and at the same time control our own data. It promises to transform how we learn, how we educate, how we transact business and more as the real and virtual versions of ourselves interact with the world.
On the Minisode, Bettina shares what it takes for women to play bigger and why:
- Resilience and outward fearlessness is an absolute requirement
- Why a little naiveté goes a long way helping pioneers shoot for the moon
- How to innovate on the cutting edge of technology
- Fundraise successfully to scale your startup
- Balance it innovation with young children
- And much more…
