"Nobody builds a company by themselves"

October 2, 2018 Mischa Von Nachtigal

For this week’s episode of That Moment, we’re talking to women and their close encounters with the glass ceiling—from how they’ve created communities and virtual business advisors, to how they have built promising companies.

First up: our host Doree Shafrir talks to Carolyn Rodz, Founder of Alice, and her personal pivot from failed entrepreneur to professional mentor.

When an artist Penelope Gazin and marketing executive Kate Dwyer founded Witchsy, a more mystical alternative to other online marketplaces, they expected the challenges that come with a startup. What they didn't expect? That being taken seriously as entrepreneurs would require inventing a male counterpart.
