Game Changer: Mariana Costa

Americas Now

She’s a social entrepreneur from Peru who found herself in the right place at the right time, and seized the chance to use her skills to make a difference.

While working at a software development company, she realized she was one of only two female employees on staff. So she started a program to teach other women about digital software and help employ them too.

Since then, she’s disrupted tech in her local market, making it more accessible than ever for young women who wouldn’t have had the opportunity otherwise, to break into the field.

Dan Collyns brings us the story of a Game Changer, the founder of “Laboratoria” Mariana Costa.
