Poornima Vijayashanker is the founder of Femgineer, an educational business that empowers forward-thinking techies of all backgrounds and promotes inclusiveness in the high-tech industry. She was also one of the founders of the budgeting site Mint.com and later started Bizeebee, a company that provides software that helps membership-oriented businesses like fitness studios manage customer information.  In this interview with EIX's Kim Eddleston, Vijayashanker talks about her first childhood entrepreneurial experience selling popcorn door to door; how she gave up a steady paycheck to turn Femgineer from a blog into a thriving business; and about why entrepreneurs must be open to coaching.
