Andrea Delgado-Olson

History

Andrea and Zaza began working together in 2015 where they worked together on many community initiatives for a global organization of technical women, Systers, with over 70K members currently. Their work together was constant and productive. Systers gained membership, active participation, and social engagement under their collaboration and leadership. This collaboration led to a friendship that once again turned into a working relationship and partnership. Their synchronicities and understanding of each others’ working styles have proven successful and innovative, measured by the accomplishments and successes with this company.


In March 2020, we started on the path to ZaaWink. We recognized a need for automation in the workplace when the trend of taking temperatures to enter an establishment began. From their experience working together, Zaza and Andrea worked on a solution to assist businesses to work smarter, not harder.
