108: Developing the Nailbot at the Intersection of Beauty and Tech with Pree Walia of Preemadonna

In today’s episode, you’ll hear a conversation largely focused on beauty tech after a number of shows with an emphasis on media and sustainable fashion. And it makes sense that we’d tack back this way: as you’ll know if you listen to the show with any regularity, I’m a huge believer in technology’s ability to move fashion, beauty and so much more into a better place.

Meet this week’s guest, Pree Walia, Founder of Preemadonna.

On this week’s show, Pree and I dive into the story behind her company, the maker of the world’s very first robotic DIY nail art machine. Yes, DIY robotic nail art! Using a smartphone app, the Nailbot prints original designs on users’ nails. It sounds like something for the 13-year-old realm (and, to be sure, it so is), buy its implications go far beyond girls who want to step out with cute ‘cures.

Listen in for Pree’s journey from political campaign trail to developing a hardware product that was recently tapped to be a part of the latest L’Oreal accelerator program.
