About me
British-born, Entrepreneur Laura Richardson is a dynamic left-brain/right-brain thinker and a ‘one-to-watch’ within the global tech start-up ecosystem. Laura is proud Cofounder of Wiip.co, a revolutionary new remote collaboration tool for thinking visually. Wiip is a place to gather ideas, share research, collaborate in real-time and capture imaginative journeys. Prior to launching Wiip, she successfully launched, alongside Founder Pip Jamieson, The-Dots, an online professional network for multi-disciplinary creative professionals and businesses. Laura’s position on the executive founding team was instrumental in growing The Dots’ community to 400,000+ active members worldwide. During her time at The Dots, the company successfully secured £1.5 million investment and appointed BBH advertising legend, Sir John Hegarty, as Chairman in 2015. Drawing on two decades working within the creative industries and Tech Startup ecosystem Laura is dedicated to making the creative process equal and championing diversity of thought. She is a proud mother of two balancing her passion for Wiip with her personal life; she hopes to inspire females globally in believing they can do it too.
