Is Alice The New Siri For Entrepreneurs?

Alice is the business advisor who wants to help you grow your company. Natasha Zena catches up with Alice Founder Carolyn Rodz to learn about the new platform that is gaining buzz.

It’s been a while since I chatted with Carolyn Rodz. When we first met (virtually) a couple years ago, it was to discuss her startup Circular Board, an online accelerator for women entrepreneurs. Last summer our writer Sharelle M. Burt caught up with our cover star to talk about Circular Board and the early stages of her new venture, Alice.

Their interview left me intrigued and so I caught with Rodz before the holidays to find out how she and her team are innovating the entrepreneur ecosystem and how Alice, as a tool, will provide universal access to business solutions through technology and educational programming. It really got me thinking … We ask Apple’s Siri all types of questions. Will Alice be the Siri for entrepreneurs?
