Amazing things Noramay's made
Two things:
1) I'm one of the two founders of Make in LA, a seed stage hardware accelerator and venture fund. We saw an opportunity in LA's tech landscape and sought to leverage LA's diversity, tech talent, manufacturing history and emerging venture capital to support talented and thirsty hardware entrepreneurs. We've invested in 12 startups that have gone on to raise +$20MM and create jobs in various regions of the US and abroad.

2) I cofounded the Latinas in STEM Foundation, a national nonprofit organization inspiring and empowering young women, particularly in the Latino community, to pursue and thrive in STEM fields. The organization was founded in 2013 and continues to work within K-12, college and professional sectors to build community around careers in STEM.
