In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner MaRS Discovery Distrct speaks with Stephany Lapierre, the founder of Tealbook, an enterprise software company, about building a team for her startup and her identity as a female entrepreneur. 

Similar to other female founders, Lapierre received comments from others about being a woman entrepreneur. Despite time spent building up Tealbook and knowing there was stigma around female entrepreneurs, Lapierre did not think about the fact that she was a female business owner until someone pointed it out.  

In the early days, Lapierre realized though she did not have the experience, she could build a team up that lent her credibility through their own impressive records. Lapierre credits her decision to build up her team early as one of the keys of success for Tealbook.
