Welcome to the first episode of the march women’s series!
In this episode, I sat down with Caroline Noublanche, Co-Founder and CEO of the world’s first virtual fertility startup called Apricity. Caroline is an experienced entrepreneur, who before launching Apricity, co-founded the mobile app Prylos at the age of 27, which she sold eventually to Swedish giant Doro AB in 2011. In addition to talking about her new venture in the fertility tech space, I really enjoyed getting her thoughts on being a women entrepreneur, how she balances family and work, and her advice to other women. Hope you like it!
