RWL 051 – Alina Vandenberghe, CEO Chili Piper: From Corporate High Flyer To Entrepreneurial Tech Leader

By Alex Wilson-Campbell, Founder, Remote Work Life

I had a great conversation with the CPO of Chili Piper, Alina Vandenberghe who started her entrepreneurial journey in high school selling lipstick.

She’s a true inspiration to parents everywhere because she’s balancing motherhood and running two businesses!!

Alina says that entrepreneurship fits her like a glove and I totally agree because she endured challenges to reach the pinnacle of her career and create products that solve important problems.

She said “I founded Chili Piper that boosts buyer engagement for cool companies like Airbnb, Twillio, Eventbrite and thousands of others.

I am also co-founder at GipsyBot where we’re building the first intelligent, AI-powered todo list”

And you can bet there’s much more to come from Alina and Chili Piper so I recommend listening to her story on the remote work life podcast.

You’ll Learn:

>> How she got into tech from an early age to eventually become CPO and Founder of two tech businesses

>> About her career journey and how she developed an affinity to entrepreneurship

>> About her life growing up in communist Romania and the drivers that spurred her to start her first business while at school

>> How she escaped her corporate 9-5 career and discovered that she was an entrepreneur

>> The steps she went through to figure out her natural talents and passion
