Her entrepreneurial spirit also shone through with 3DplusMe, a 3D printing personalization platform that secured partnerships with giants like Marvel, Star Wars, and Walmart before its acquisition. Beyond her corporate achievements, Cydni has made significant contributions to the tech community as the founder and President of the Women Tech Council and co-founder of the SheTech program, impacting over 40,000 high school girls.
