Being denied one’s goal multiple times would make many people give up, but for Wearable Tech Ventures founder LaKisha Greenwade, it helped her come back stronger.
“We bridge the gap between corporations, investors, angel investors, government institutions, founders and aspiring founders to come together and develop and promote wearable technology,” Greenwade said.
Despite the rebranding, Greenwade said that the key to wearable tech is a balance of fashion and the helpfulness of the technology. She consults with tech founders and fashion experts from New York and California to Europe and South Africa.
