On this week’s show, we spoke with Naomi Goldapple, Head of Alayalabs @ Alayacare.

An entrepreneur and digital strategist, Naomi is passionate about how new technologies and AI can build communities, commercialize products and solve real business challenges. With over 20 years of experience she has a reputation for being an innovator, corporate strategist and strong supporter of mentorship programs and the Montreal tech community.

Naomi leads AlayaLabs, the innovation backbone of AlayaCare, where she applies research in machine learning and optimization applications to elevate the AlayaCare client experience and drive business results.

Prior to AlayaCare, Naomi was one of the first employees at the dynamic start-up, Element AI. As one of its first employees she took a number of different roles and led the product and business development for AI products in the transportation and logistics vertical.

Demystifying the application of AI technologies is a topic Naomi speaks to regularly at conferences around the globe. That straight-talk approach is also what makes her an in-demand mentor and contributor to organizations like TechStars and Founder Fuel.

Building community is very important to Naomi and that can be seen in her volunteer and entrepreneurial endeavours. She founded and ran the award-winning Maman, bébé et café inc., a centre for young families where the adults could get fit, socialize, shop or get pampered while their children played in the state-of-the-art play area.

 

On the show, we spoke about:

  • The importance of both technology and a robust business model
  • Alayacare’s mission and how they help home care workers
  • Providing workflows for the public and private sector
  • Creating new opportunities with data.

 

Naomi is one of the sharpest executives I know. It was a real pleasure to reconnect with you despite everything going on. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
