The VentureFizz Podcast: Christine Schindler - Co-Founder and CEO at PathSpot

For the 107th episode of our podcast, I interviewed Christine Schindler, Co-Founder and CEO at PathSpot.

Even from an early age, Christine is the type of person who has always tried to connect the dots and come up with solutions. Whether it was figuring out how to turn off her lights without having to get out of bed as a child or recognizing the need to help promote STEM education and engineering careers for girls or building technology that helps protect us from foodborne illnesses, there’s no doubt that she is a problem solver who takes action.

Her current company, PathSpot, is working to address the 48 million cases of foodborne illnesses a year. The company’s hand scanner ensures that food-handling team members are in compliance with a positive food sanitation culture.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:

  • Christine background and her experiences across multiple areas.
  • What led her down the path of starting Girls Engineering Change.
  • All the details on PathSpot and how their product works.
  • Advice for founders on getting the most out of their Techstars experience.
  • How to determine whether or not to accept advice from mentors.
  • Plus, a lot more.
