Lida Tohidi

Managing Director, 23 Design

San Francisco

Lida has 10+ years of experience, ranging from working in a Fortune 1000 company to a venture fund to startups. Initiatives and teams that Lida led include: launching a national incubator, advising startups that have raised over $500 million, and winning international competitions, such as the Google Startup Battle award out of 1000+ teams.

Lida is very passionate about diversity and inclusion in tech and beyond, and she honored it by speaking. She applied design thinking principles to create and improve her talks, and she continues to do so. In the last year alone, Lida spoke at conferences and events at Diversability, ExpatWoman, Google, Latinos in Tech, Make School, Outco, Tencent, ThoughtWorks, Twitch, WellsFargo, Women in STEM, and WEST (Women Entering and Staying in Tech).

Lida has had experience in initiating, leading, and completing projects in Australia, Bénin, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Malawi, Switzerland, the UAE, UK, and USA. In short, she has lived and worked on all continents (though still awaiting an invitation from Antarctica :D), and speaks 3 languages well (and another 3 poorly).
