Ariel Garten, co-founder and CEO of InteraXon, says that to succeed in entrepreneurship, you have to shut out your inner critic and follow your passion.

Ariel recently gave a talk at MaRS Mornings, a monthly speaker series at MaRS celebrating creative founders and visionary leaders. During the talk, Ariel spoke about building her company and its main product “Muse,” a brain-sensing wearable headband that acts as a meditation tool. The company has seen great success and attracted significant investment, including from celebrity tech investor Ashton Kutcher.
