Why women are not Men. Designing for women with WILD.AI founder Hélène Guillaume

Side Effects

Helene Guillaume, CEO and Founder of Wild.Ai. is on the show and talks about designing for women.Through WILD.AI’s research and algorithms, Helene’s app helps women perform and train all over the world, based off their physiology – not some misplaced system built alone on Male data. Not only can it predict when a woman will experience bloating or menstrual pain, but how to alleviate these symptoms. During ovulation, when the body is particularly strong, it will notify you when workouts can be pushed, and optimise the decisions you take for your body to reach peak performance.Her company is endorsed by superstar olympians like Paula Radcliffe, with #FemTech being a massive growth area. Wild Ai has attracted funding and support from Greylock, Reid Hoffman and McKinsey .But, what can Guillaume tell us about resilience (potentially to viruses) and how women and men might need to be understood differently in regard to their preventative health?Our conversation explores her cutting edge work, and the road ahead for women and athletes all over the world.

Hélène is the Founder and CEO of WILD AI - an AI-powered App designed specifically for women and their physiology. Her accomplished background in business and science combined with her love for sport put her in a unique position to change an industry that is, like many others, male biased. Although women make up nearly half of the population, a recent paper on "Sex Bias in Neuroscience and Biomedical Research" shows that 80% of the animals used in research are male. "These findings cannot be applied to women who are impacted daily by the 500 menstrual cycles they'll experience over 40 years.  More so, a 22 year old taking the pill has different nutritional needs, physiology and digestion than a 47 year old perimenopausal woman."Go check out WILD AI here.Also, you'll find some amazing opportunities to support WILD AI here.Twitter: @Helene_wild_aiInstagram: @helene_wild_aiHélène talking about boosting the immune system: WILD AI x ROAD x FITTERFind David's CHPT3 here: CHPT3.comFind Mikkel's ReD Associates here: redassociates.com

So whenever something bad happens, a few minutes later I’m stronger and I have plan of attack. Finding within yourself the strength and the motivation is a mental exercise that you do when you are doing extreme events and it’s a mental exercise that you do when you’re an entrepreneur. Discipline goes with passion. Internal confidence comes from keeping commitments to yourself. Empowerment is having that feeling that you do something that makes you alive, and proud, and happy. Serving women serves society, if we empower women. Music by: Taste the Vibe - “Arctic Monkeys - R U Mine? (Mungø Remix)” unedited, via Creative Commons
