Around the same time Uber were changing the way we get around, Venetia Archer spotted an opportunity to similarly disrupt the beauty industry. There was just one problem - she had no experience in tech. What she did have was a background in journalism and a passion for ideas which helped her research what she did not already know. Within a few short years she has built a thriving business with global ambition, has already begun acquiring other companies, and has been named on Forbes 30 under 30 list for retail and ecommerce. In this episode of Women Tech Charge, Venetia talks to Anne-Marie about how she grew her company and the lessons she has learned along the way as a woman in Tech.
