When we were young, our heroes included the likes of Floella Benjamin, Tony Hart, and Long Distance Clara (yes, we know we’re showing our age!). 🚛
For Sherry Coutu, arguably one of the UK’s most successful serial entrepreneurs, she was inspired by someone in a different league: Dame Stephanie ‘Steve’ Shirley.
Dame Stephanie showed Sherry that a completely different path from the one she’d been expecting to follow existed… one where women could thrive in the tech space.
And thrive Sherry most definitely has.✨
She founded a company valued at more than $1 billion (Canadian dollars), has used her wealth to become an angel investor in companies she’s passionate about, and is STILL helping to find solutions to problems thanks to her latest initiative, Digital Boost.
She’s played BIG. HUGE!
So, how has she done it?
