Sherry Shannon - Vanstone is a serial entrepreneur. She started her career as a cryptology mathematician in the US government, then went on to work at a start up in Silicon Valley. She then went on to co-found and found companies specializing in security and her latest company, Profound Impact, a female-founded, Canadian data analytics company that leverages AI and machine learning to provide solutions for the higher education and research sectors. She has a BS degree in Mathematics and an Honorary Doctorate of Laws.

What do we talk about in this episode?

Sherry shares her passion for promoting women in STEM and women in sports. Sherry began her career in cryptology as a code breaker over 40 years ago. She shares her experience as a woman working in this field so many years ago. She shares her experience in Silicon Valley and then working in security and encryption founding and co-foudning companies with her husband and later on on her own.

  1. How she brings her "why" into her work and other ventures.
  2. Being a code breaker for the government is indeed as cool as it sounds!
  3. How a university president changed her course of study and got her into mathematics - our supporters and champions are so important.
  4. How she met her husband - at a mathematics conference!! (There has to be an equation for that!)
  5. Her experience trying to get funding, her work on changing the VC world for female founders and opportunities we may all have to make change in this space.
