In her late twenties, she raised $670 million to fund the first ever global digital satellite radio start-up, WorldSpace, which included XMRadio for the United States. in the 90s, she also did some of the first ever digital content licensing deals, including Bloomberg News with Michael Bloomberg and CNN International.

MPEG Layer-3 and MPEG Layer-4, are now known as MP3 and MP4 and both WorldSpace and XMRadio went public.
