Side Effects: Covid19 / Ep37: Women are not Men. Designing for women with WILD.AI founder Hélène Guillaume

[39 Mins]

 

Today I talk to Helene Guillaume, CEO and Founder of Wild.Ai.

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. Periods are the last taboo in sports, WILD.AI is breaking it.
