 ”Our way of thinking is based on the assumption that the future is going to be like the past”

I am a Silicon Valley-based entrepreneur and co-founder of Womenreignite Inc.

Women Reignite is the next generation of life management and personal productivity software. It is our mission to connect, inspire, and impact 200 million women by 2040. 

Women Reignite is our response to the upcoming “social recession” — an epidemic of loneliness and isolation brought on by the COVID-19. As long as it remains unwise to gather in physical spaces, we will need to create virtual spaces that can sustain women. Women Reignite connect women in similar life stages and provide affordable life improvement tools online. 

Women Reignite is a low-cost virtual learning platform with exclusive mastermind content at a fraction of the price of the therapy. A scalable platform combined with a community network effect.

The product is an ONLINE mental wellbeing program to help women make better decisions on sleep, meditation, nutrition, exercise & prepare them for the future of work.
