Dr Linda Worrall-Carter first became aware of CEO of She Knows Business, Angelica Kopec, after attending the Forbes Australia Women’s Summit in March this year as she is a Forbes Business Council Advisor and Forbes Member Leader (these are invited positions).
Today, Her Heart proudly welcomes Angelica, as its newest Advisor and Partner. This appointment brings together her passion for supporting women, her business acumen, roots in technology, philanthropy and strong networking connections to create further impact in the fight against heart disease for women.
Angelica is a former lawyer, supported by a decade of senior level experience in driving successful start-ups to multi-million dollar businesses. She is a serial entrepreneur with her own ventures such as She Knows Business, Grid Pay and myBabySitter. Her success and acumen led to her appointment to the Forbes Business Development Council in 2022. She is also a Venture Capitalist and one of the founding members of the Dream100 initiative by the US-based charity, Dream Machine Foundation.
Angelica is at the forefront of helping companies that are reshaping the landscape of their respective industries and we are excited to have her join Her Heart.
“Thank you for entrusting me with raising awareness for this important cause. I am committed to building on the work to date, and changing the alarming statistics of 1 woman dying every hour from something that is 80% preventable. This is not a disease that women should only care about in later life, prevention is the answer. I want to make heart checks as normal as every day things – skin care, mental health care, fitness routines etc, that’s the only way we’ll make a significant change in one generation.”
