Electrify Aotearoa

3 things that every woman founder should know

Our co-founder Amber Marie Naveira was welcomed onto stage at #ElectrifyAotearoa.

It was her first official key note speech as a founder and she chose to share with the audience an open and honest kōrero (conversation) around her personal start up journey and the learnings she's gained along the way.

We are so proud of Amber Marie and stoked for the awesome reception she received on the day. The audience was made up of almost 500 fellow female founders and the investment community from Aotearoa, who all came together in Ōtautahi | Christchurch for the inaugural event brought to the startup community by the team at Ministry of Awesome and Blackbird VC.

Here's a video leading up to the event where Amber Marie was asked to share 3 things that every woman founder should know. We believe that her answers are relatable to all founders and why it's super important to keep ahold of your values.

  1. Protect your mana - because your mana is you!

  2. Be fearless and celebrate your accomplishments!

  3. Be ready to be challenged and be strong in yourself!

If you're keen to hear from Amber Marie herself, she has shared her reflection summary and how it impacted her HERE.

Tihei Mauri Ora!
