I met Vicki in San Francisco at Joanne Fedeyko's weeklong Canadian Women's Network, even though we are both from Calgary. At the time, I was searching for answers to fix my business because I was recently brain injured and everything had fallen apart. She knows about the journey I have been through and has always been super supportive.

She had to leave midway through the program because she got accepted to Tech Stars in Norway, where she rocked it!! Congrats Vicki on behalf of all women raising funds for their companies — you're an inspiration.

And now, 2 years later, we talk about raising money and geek out on talking tech.

I absolutely love connecting with Vicki. She's an amazing woman who has built a business in both energy and tech (she likes challenges, I guess!), and I'm honoured to call her my friend.

Why we love her?

  • She won an energy new venture competition, won innovation and process control at the global petroleum show, and went through the tech stars accelerator.
  • She raised venture capital funding for her oil and gas control room automation software.
  • She does a lot of rock climbing/mountaineering/backcountry skiing.
