In the latest Up To Speed podcast, meet a passionate entrepreneur who‘s on a mission to help young women design the life and career they love.

Lisa Mayer, founder and CEO of My Social Canvas

One day you can be sitting on a warehouse floor attaching price tags to a product, and the next, you could be attending an event at the White House. That’s how Lisa Mayer, founder and CEO of My Social Canvas, described the life of an entrepreneur. Working with startups and creating her own company allowed Lisa to design her own career, while providing resources and opportunities for young women to do the same.

In our latest Up To Speed podcast, Lisa describes how she combined scholarship and design opportunities to fulfill her mission to educate, inspire, and equip the next generation of high school and college girls to design the life and career they love. She also shares her advice for would-be entrepreneurs.

This month, Verizon Wireless debuts two new phone cases for iPhone (X, XS, XR, XS Max) in-store and online - designed by three of the young women My Social Canvas worked with to design that life and career they love.

Smart cases for smart women

Learn more about the hackathon and journey that brought the cases to store shelves nationwide.
