Kristen Hazard

Kristen Hazard, the owner of San Luis Obispo software company, Suntoucher, talks about her shift from consulting to selling her own, self-funded app, and what it took to "bootstrap" a startup product. She shares why helping other women in tech is important, and gives some tips to women who want to enter the industry. And she describes her philosophy of generosity in business and why her company donates one percent of its profits to conserve local land.
