RISK with COLLEEN WONG: Founder of TechSixtyFour and MyGatorWatch
How do you feel about RISK? As an ex-investment banker turned tech startup founder our guest, Colleen Wong, is no stranger to taking RISKs. Danusia and Colleen cover wearing different “hats”, flexible working and the relationship between failure and risk.
Colleen started Techsixtyfour when her children were 18 months and 4 months old. She had her idea for My Gator Watch, a wearable mobile phone and tracker for children, when she took her babies out and saw a mum running around on a farm looking for her 5 year old boy. Fast forward 4 years, My Gator Watch is now the UK’s top rated children’s wearable mobile phone. She has 13 flexible working mums and dads on her team and has expanded her business to Europe.
Colleen is a Sky Women in Tech Scholar 2019, has won AXA’s Health Tech and You Award in 2018 and a finalist for Startup Entrepreneur of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2019.
