172: Entrepreneur in Residence Check-In with Lisa Pegram, Founder of Belle 51
Today in the guest chair, we have our Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Lisa Pegram. She is a Data Scientist who launched a cutting-edge home laser for melanated skin. Listen to Episode 155 to hear when she was first introduced to Side Hustle Pro listeners.
She has built a career in analytics and is currently in pursuit of her PhD at Columbia where she studies meta-cognition and data sciences. At the time of our last conversation, she was getting ready to launch her business Belle 51; a company dedicated to the specific woes of black and brown skin.
Belle 51’s first product is Solèy, the first home laser therapy device that can achieve rapid clearing results at home for all skin types, particularly black and brown tones for whom existing laser technology has until now been ineffective or unsafe.
Let’s check in with Lisa to see where she is in her entrepreneur journey.
