Kate and Danae are two tech industry leaders based in Scotland. They first met when they worked together at the same startup business, and instantly became friends.
Over the years, they kept in touch. Sometimes offering advice or being a shoulder to cry on. But over and over again, they found their conversations to be about the bullying they had experienced at work. They had also seen colleagues be mistreated, and watched their friends decide not to take action against racist, homophobic, or mysognistic employers because they didn't know what to do or couldn't afford it.
Enough was enough, so in 2019 they started using their tech knowledge to make a better workplace future. They wanted to create something which helps people understand their rights, and be empowered to take action in an affordable manner. Using Kate's product and coding knowledge and Danae's marketing prowess, Valla was born.
