Stephanie Dainow has a lifelong passion for longevity and breakthrough, disruptive technologies that drive radical improvement to the human condition. As a seasoned business professional, she has worked with many startup founders and corporate leaders, leveraging a non-traditional background and out-of-the-box thinking that helps challenge assumptions about business objectives, value propositions, and leadership best practices.
