LONDON — MysteryVibe co-founder Stephanie Alys opened the London Stock Exchange this morning.
Alys, a finalist for Veuve Cliquot's 2018 Business Woman Award, joined other leading British businesswomen in opening the exchange, a first for the sextech industry.
"Being invited to open the London Stock Exchange is a testament to how mainstream sextech is becoming," Alys said. "There's a long way to go, but we're getting there."
To celebrate International Women's Day, Alys has launched a campaign with the founders of two other female-led businesses to draw attention to ways tech can be used to help women connect with partners.
