Aparna Srinivasan: SpotOn.Pet Founder, Tech Entrepreneur, Dog and Pig Owner | WOMEN OF INSPIRATION

As a cat owner, cat sitter, woman in tech, and entrepreneur, I have a deep appreciation for Aparna and SpotOn for the value and solution it provides for me as someone who always has a need to transport cats! I sit down with Aparna (and her pet pig!) for this episode. SpotOn.Pet is a ride-hailing transportation app for pets and pet-parents. The app connects you with trusted drivers that will take your pet anywhere, with or without you being present. From airports, to parks, & even vet visits, you can only phone a friend so many times or pay hundreds for a car service, to carry your pet safely to where they need to go. I go through Aparna’s experience as CEO and founder of SpotOn.Pet as well as the future of SpotOn.Pet!

I left my technology consulting job at Accenture for… | WHY, HOW, WHERE TO NEXT?

This has been a big secret I’ve been holding for three months now!

I explain why I start looking, how I started looking, the timeline of what exactly happened (separate video on the actual interview process coming soon!) and the big reveal of my new role and company! So excited for this new step in my career!

What is AI?

I’m by no means an expert in AI, but it is NOT perfect and will not take over humans. It would help speed processes, but it will still require human intervention.

There is data bias from AI and it’s only as good as your data was. There’s also a lot of bias with the data you put in, so it’s always very important to make sure you try to remove bias.

What did you think of the situation in the graphic? Are you surprised?
