19. Being a Gradpreneur

36m | Oct 22, 2021

Have you ever considered starting a business in graduate school? If so, then this episode is for you. Danielle is a 6th year PhD student and co-founder of Lil Labmates, an environmentally sustainable company that produces stem themed developmental baby toys. On this episode we talk about how childbirth and the pandemic gave her the inspiration, the parallels between grad school (ie. You will fail and you will learn; seeking out support) and also about how knowing yourself and your triggers will be an asset to you as you embark on the entrepreneurship journey.

We address all of these questions and more:

Why is starting a business in grad school opportune?

What does self-care have to do with it?

What to do when you fail?
