Nathalie Molina-Niño is all at once a technologist, coder, entrepreneur, and storyteller. As the CEO of BRAVA Investments, she combines her skills to manage a portfolio which bank-roles startups on the condition that they disproportionately benefit women. The daughter of Latin American immigrants, Nathalia admits to being a Columbian who doesn’t drink coffee, but nonetheless energetically answers Time4Coffee’s rapid fire Espresso Shots questions that Java Junkies interested in breaking into the technology or start-up fields need to know. Nathalie shares how she ended up on the technology track, including how she dropped out of engineering school to pioneer her own start-up when she was 20 years ago, and returned to school years later to study Theatre. Press play for all that and more, on this surprisingly decaffeinated Espresso Shots career conversation!
