An Announcement & My Favorite Startup Lesson

Jacqueline Ros Notes from Jackie

First, I’m excited to share that Revolar is taking part in its second Techstars program, Techstars Retail — an accelerator created in partnership with Target. A huge thanks to Techstars and Target for the opportunity to push our product, our thinking and our team to new heights. Now for that lesson I’m so fond of.

End Victim Blaming

Jacqueline Ros Notes from Jackie

As it stands, the odds aren’t great. In the US, we can prove 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men report sexual violence within their lifetimes. According to RAINN, 68% of sexual assaults are never reported. Why? There are many reasons. Victims already know their attackers in 4 out of 5 cases and they fear that no one will believe them. Women and men who try to report their assaults are put through a legal ringer that is emotionally exhausting. Often they are made to feel ashamed as if they did something wrong. And despite having the courage...
