Welcome to episode 25 of the Innovating Advice show.
I’m joined by Claudia Reuter who is a GM at Techstars, which is a global platform for investment and innovation.
Claudia is also the author of the Yes, You Can Do This! How Women Start Up, Scale Up and Build the Life They Want.
In this episode, we’re talking through a few of the many topics Claudia covers in the book, including women advocating for themselves, perfectionism, imposter syndrome and why so many of today’s workplace constructs are outdated, and what we can do about it.
While the book and episode are geared towards women, they’re highly relevant to men as well.
And because this book was such a powerful read, I’m giving away a copy to one lucky listener. Connect with me on LinkedIn and send me a message about what resonated most to you in this episode and I’ll do a drawing on 30 April.
Recognized by the Boston Business Journal as a 2016 Women to Watch in Science and Technology, and as a Changemaker by HUBWeek, Reuter is an experienced entrepreneur and executive. In her new book, Yes You Can Do This! How Women Start Up, Scale Up and Build the Life They Want (Wiley 2020), Reuter has created a manifesto encouraging women to consider entrepreneurship, and a how-to-guide to get started.
As the Podcast creator and host of The 43 Percent, which has featured acclaimed guests including Dr. Pamela Stone, Nataly Kogan, Laura Vanderkam, and Lisa Oz, Reuter is committed to sharing more stories of what success can look like for women in business as they work to balance family and career.
She is also currently a GM with Techstars, an organization focused on investing in and helping to accelerate startups and has made 20 investments as a Managing Director.
