What comes to mind when you hear the word “founder” or “entrepreneur”?
Few people imagine a 27 year old Brazilian female biologist, much less a mother of 3 kids.
The gender imbalance in entrepreneurship and tech is a real problem. Countless hours of debate have done little more than create confusion and an pointless battle between the sexes. We are choosing to act, rather than merely add to the noise. This is why, we’ve created Athena.
At Exosphere we want to refocus on the woman, as she is. By withdrawing ourselves from that noisy informational space, with numerous disputable opinions and ideas, what sense will it make to talk about what needs to be changed when we will be already changing it?
Our mission begins by asking new questions instead of looking back to find reasons or examine outdated answers. “How can we empower women to pursue their deep inner calling? How can we help women solve more problems and Disturb the Universe?”
We don’t have the answers. Athena is a journey to find them with you.
Our process is built on a belief that success comes from a personal and ongoing search for knowledge. That knowledge is not just the amount of information in our heads, but a never-ending desire to experience more of the world. It works across every important area of humanity; entrepreneurship, social innovation, psychology, science, arts, computer science, robotics, etc.
We want to act as catalyst, bringing together successful women from around the globe and providing valuable philosophical and practical tools to learn, grow, and do – together, to achieve the independence and greatness they are capable of.
Athena has been created to build connections beween current and future female leaders. Like all Exosphere programs, it has been designed to connect people, minds, and cultures to bring more knowledge to life, animating it into solutions to the problems of real people, and bringing meaning to the people creating them.
