Listen: Tech Founder Eva Helén on Starting Up

With more than two decades in tech, Eva Helén has co-founded, built, and exited two software companies – most recently Sanbolic, acquired by Citrix in 2015. Since 2017, she has influenced a broad range of technology companies to build more diverse workforces and inclusive cultures. Her book Women In Tech: A Book for Guys is based on her research and interviews with men in the tech industry. 

We spoke with Eva about her experience co-founding two successful startups and what eventually led her to support the advancement of women and minorities in tech. 

Special thanks to Emergent Campus for facilitating this opportunity.
