This is the last — but definitely not least — of 20 interviews recorded in a popup backroom studio at dojo4 during the 10th annual Boulder Startup Week. Thanks to all the guests for their time and patience, and to all of you, for listening.

Our guest for Episode 56 is Sara Bates, co-founder and CEO at MamaMend, a personalized, evidence-based guide to childbirth recovery and postpartum health.

Sara and I talk tech and birthing, and touch on:

  • her journey from her time on Wall Street to founder of an app for postpartum moms
  • the dichotomy and balance between data and intuition when it comes to raising a new child
  • thoughts on being a founder, a woman and a mom in the tech industry
