Hello There

MEET NALY RICE

Welcome to my corner of the world where business, technology, writing, and art convene.  Through my decade long career in technology to becoming an Entrepreneur and Writer, I’ve experienced the highs and lows of business ownership. 

Sharing my journey and mentoring entrepreneurs with Dell, Cartier Women’s Initiative, and more I discovered my voice and purpose.  

I’m passionate about investing in ventures and opportunities that uplift and empower more women to become entrepreneurs no matter their social, cultural, or economic barriers.

No matter where in the world you go, more access to education, funding, community, and resources are needed for women.  Entrepreneurship, even on a small scale, can impact a woman’s life.

I’m grateful to connect with you and collaborate with organizations that uplift and empower women to chase their entrepreneurial dreams.

Thank you for joining us on the journey!

OUR TEAM VALUES

Love Your Work

We believe in the art and science of work. Some people dream, and others go about the business of just doing. We're the latter. It's a privilege to devote our working lives to our passions and don't take it for granted.

Be Kind

Being nice and being kind are two different things. We're kind to partners, our team mates, families, friends, the environment and to ourselves. We treat each other and ourselves with respect.

Team Mentality

We work as one cohesive unit from top to bottom. We don't take things personally if it's the best decision for the whole team. We bring the best versions of ourselves to work and help each other.

Open Communication

We value being open, transparent and honest human beings. We build positive dialogues and aren't too proud to sit around the kitchen table and have tough conversations when needed.

Mutual Respect

We respect each other and perform all tasks with integrity. We treat each other the way we'd like to be treated and personify a positive moral compass that doesn't waver.

Humor

Life is short, no one can afford to take themselves too seriously. We love humor and believe everyone should find at least one reason for a deep belly laugh each day. Funny memes are a great start!
