Lianne Vega is an Industrial Engineering student at the University of Puerto Rico - Mayagüez, while also undertaking an EdTech startup that she co-founded.
Ever since arriving at the university, Lianne has had crazy ideas about solving different problems and creating startups, but she struggled to find the tools that she needed. She noticed that many other students experienced this as well, and decided to enhance the startup program offered by Idea Platform by bringing external startup leaders who can serve as mentors. Having these mentors, students can obtain the tools they need to innovate while connecting them to external startups who can be potential partners, and help them grow their ideas.
Currently, Lianne leads multidisciplinary teams at her startup, where she makes different backgrounds come together to provide teachers with the most innovative approaches to teaching.
