a mother-daughter project
Techie Brains is an entity that believes that children’s education should promote steam learning. Through a method that fosters curiosity, logical thinking and artistic inspiration, The main objective of this project is to introduce children to digital transformation and make it a part of their daily life.,
“We launched Techie Minds because we wanted to bridge the digital knowledge gap, and I speak in the plural because my daughter Ariana is Techie’s CEO and I am the president,” she says. “My three kids were studying in Australia for 4 years and they would bring me a 3D printed project to work on deadlockThey had become very familiar with the technology and when we returned to Peru we could not find a place for them to continue to develop these skills.
However, Daly and Ariana – who are now 22 and about to complete their business degrees in England – wanted to democratize the education of STEAM subjects, so they always envisioned the project with an NGO.
,In this one and half year we have been able to benefit more than 5,000 students and with our team we are clear that this is only the beginning,
A free, pleasurable and consensual sexuality
The start up nomination was the second Giuliana Huaman received in less than two weeks for her work on Mia, so I felt good and I was not wrong,
In the words of its founder, Mia was born as an educational platform on sexuality, but the desire to create a more innovative project inspired the team to develop an artificial intelligence. That it is a partner to prevent sexual health problems and a platform that connects thousands of women to sexuality experts.
“My goal was to impress Spanish-speaking women because no EPS in Spain or Latin America provides health services focused on sexuality,” says Huaman. ,With Mia in the palm of your hand is a sex coach for 20 soles a month,
So far more than 1,00,000 women have benefited from this platform and the road has not been easy. “We are the first sex tech in Peru and since the majority of investors are men, we had several challenges to show us how important it was to address this problem.”
The team’s next goal is to develop Mia Companies, a program that works with various organizations to implement labor policies focused on sexual welfare, “How much can we talk about equity if a woman struggles with menstrual pain at work because she’s too embarrassed to talk about it? Or if she doesn’t say she’s going through menopause then her Won’t be treated differently? We talk about equal pay and jobs, but not sexual health.
Mariana Costa Checa stands out in the field of innovation not only in Peru but in the world. She was honored by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as one of the most innovative people under 35, was selected by the BBC as one of 9 Latin American women in the 2016 100 Women and Even Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg have praised his work.
“I may be representative, but that is the merit of my team and the Laboratoria community, our students and graduates,” Costa Checa said of her nomination for the Highest Impact Initiative.
Laboratoria is a social impact organization that, through a boot camp The six-month intensive, develops the technical skills of women who are not yet able to start a professional career. “When we started, the conversation of diversity in technology was very early, but now we are part of the wave that has grown so much.”
Born with a mission to transform the lives of thousands of women, the project was started in 2014 with a pilot project of 15 students and Today it has trained more than 2,700 women from Chile, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
,We have a lot of pending work on the gender gap in the technology sector. That is why I am working at Laboratoria Plus, a platform that strives to accelerate the professional careers of our graduates, and in S Hoy, an initiative of 60 private sector leaders in which I am in charge of promoting the development of digital talent in Peru”, he concluded.
