Recap of #HowSheDidIt – Designing The Next Generation Of Wearables event

Seven weeks after starting Immersive Rehab that focuses on using Virtual Reality to improve Physical Rehabilitation, I was invited to join the panel of female entrepreneurs at the #HowSheDidIt Event : Designing The Next Generation Of Wearables, organised by Women Of Wearables and Blooming Founders at the Digital Catapult Centre London.

My journey so far as Founder/CEO of Immersive Rehab has been incredibly exciting. After joining the new startup cohort on the Tech For Good Bethnal Green Ventures accelerator programme in September 2016, it has been a steep learning curve for me in terms of dealing with the business, legal and IP aspects of setting up a business from scratch. As a technical founder being an engineer and former scientist, I was very interested in the experiences and the advice of the two other panel members Marija Butkovic from Kisha Smart Umbrella and Kirstin Hancock from Blue Maestro, who are both non-technical founders of successful wearables companies.

As a recap of the event, I was invited by the Women Of Wearables team to write a blog post about the event from a panelist’s perspective:
