Show Notes

On this episode of Think Like A Founder, SNP Co-Founder & CEO Maureen Taylor speaks with Noor Siddiqui, Founder and CEO of Orchid. They talk about parental autonomy, radical candor paired with radical kindness, and getting people to talk off-script.

Orchid helps couples have healthy babies through genetic testing. Their goal is to take away some of the scary unknowns of having a child. Before founding Orchid, Noor founded Remedy, a digital health company that helped doctors get instant answers from specialists. She received an M.S/B.S in Computer Science from Stanford, taught a class there on Reproductive Technology, and did AI and genomics research with Anshul Kundaje and Sebastian Thrun.
