Poornima has been fascinated by technology since she was 3. Her father a hardware engineer, made “chips” and “wafers”, which she thought were potato chips and cookies! Eventually her dad took her to his fab when she was 9, she sat and watched how chips and wafers were made and tested. Inspired by all that technology could do for humanity, she double majored in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Duke University. Then moved to Silicon Valley, where she was lured into startup land. She was the founding engineer at Mint.com. Since it’s acquisition she has gone on to start: BizeeBee, a CRM solution for fitness businesses, Femgineer, an education company for tech professionals and entrepreneurs, and most recently taught at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering.
