- "Denise was a stand-out keynote speaker at the Investing in Women Conference for the MBA class of ’22 and ’23, at Duke University in April 2022. She's simultaneously relatable and inspirational, whilst also being incredibly vulnerable and genuine about the highs and lows of raising capital as a female entrepreneur. Throughout the preparation process, Denise was easy to work with and we would absolutely do so again." Natalie Behan
