"There is no job, there is no product, there is no service that doesn't involve technology going forward in the 21 century.”
“Be yourself and find the investors who really get you especially if you don't come from a technical background, if you are a woman, if you are a minority. You might have to knock on more doors. I certainly did. I have to knock on a lot more doors to finally find those investors who really got it. ” — Cheryl Contee
