Here's How One Bad Decision Got Me Fired And Remade My Life.

I'm Angie Carrillo, serial tech entrepreneur, and investor. I've traveled around the world to meet some of the most successful people in my field. Thanks for being here with me!

This blog started in Silicon Valley when I got 'asked to leave' from my own company.

As a career driven overachiever I thought my business was 'my baby' and to 'be my own boss' was my priority. I paid expensive real life lessons so you don't have to...

HERE TO HELP YOU

No boring seminars here. Just straightforward advice from someone who has been in your shoes

Wanna know what lights me up? Making people feel, own, and celebrate their freedom to be themselves and feel enough. Sometimes this journey is like a rollercoaster and if I can be that permission granter that whispers: “you can do this” while the rest of the world is provoking doubt… then I’ll consider my job done.

TALKING ABOUT:

I'M NOT ABOUT:

I BELIEVE IN:

My superpower is to open opportunities for  women & minorities to be their best and scale their business with freedom, abundance, and peace. 

I  live to empower women in business and Latinx to create businesses and brands aligned with their personality, purpose that make profits.

I believe everyone has had a billion dollar idea and businesses are the best way to work on your personal development.

Graduated university Top 3 of my class! Overachiever much?
But, business is not about books...

I was working full time  in my corporate job while putting myself through university with a full scholarship. Sleep? What is that?

2011

I ate my first business 🤦🏽‍♀️🧁
I had a side hustle cupcake shop with my bestie. Went through a breakup, so eating all our cupcakes seem a rational step right? Emotional rollercoaster of biz & life 101.

2012

The year I prepared to quit my job!
I was decided to be my own boss but I didn't know what business to start. I had so many ideas! 

I joined a local Startup Weekend.
I almost don't go because I thought I had to go with my business plan prepared -hey, I was coming from corporate- and won First Place! It was the start my entrepreneurial journey.


2014

Worked as Strategy Leader of the largest pharmaceutical company in Mexico. I got so good at getting new products to market I did business plans in a week (not that you need one).

see, huh?

The Backstory

A look back on the past decade

BACKSTORY

Moved to the UK. By proximity to the Center for the Future of Humanity I understood why the world could end or be saved through tech (Artificial Intelligence).

So, I decided to learn to code and teach Latinx kids to code to have representation in who is coding our future. Still technology looks pretty white and male.

After I got a lot of 'No's from investors in Silicon Valley, I worked as an Entrepreneur in Residence & later Admissions Committee at Draper University. DU is an accelerator program in Silicon Valley by billionaire investor Tim Draper. Helping entrepreneurs was already a big part of my mission.

2016

Did I tell you I lived at NASA Ames for 6 months? Yes, I did meet astronauts. And no, I don't plan to go to space like Jeff Bezos. 

I did Singularity University Global Solutions Program with a full scholarship by Google and co-founded a biotech company after almost dying with an antibiotic resistant infection.
Talk about coming back from the dead!

2017

I thought that being a boss means you are working all the time. But we are the boss of our life and our company is just a part of it. When I quit my start-up, I realized that I was not doing many things in my life because of work. Now, when I travel around the world.

I started investing to make sure that my money is where my mouth is, that is entrepreneurs. But it was a scary first step.
Now I'm one of SoGal Ventures limited partners and I've been learning to invest and diversify my portfolio.

I lived in Brazil until the pandemic. I speak a little Portuguese and dance really bad at Carnaval, but I still miss it. 

Then, I was pretty much at home all year. Didn't we all? 

When I was ready to get vaccinated, I had COVID and almost died. While my lungs got better, my mental health got worse. Took me months to recover.

what a year, eh?

Maybe she's born with it
Maybe it's 10 years in the making

All in all, this taught me something: You never know when your detour will lead you to your destiny.

GLOBAL CITIZEN

We are all global citizens! It doesn't matter if you have checked off countries on your bucket list or if you speak many languages. We only have one world to live in. That is why I care about sustainable products and brands.

I am a citizen of the world. I was born in Peru and have lived in 4 other countries. I speak 4 languages and have visited over 40 countries. But since I could ask questions to my mom, I would wonder why there are borders on a map if it's all one planet.
