Join St. Louis Mosaic Project in celebrating International Women’s Month with a panel of foreign-born women entrepreneurs!

St. Louis has a growing international community which includes many successful women entrepreneurs whose businesses are thriving here. Learn about their journeys, how and why they decided to make St. Louis their headquarters and what inspired them to pivot toward entrepreneurship. Angela Zeng obtained a PhD in Pathology and was driven to create Karuna from her belief that nutritious healthy plant-based food can act as medicine; Pravina Pindoria spent a decade in nursing and process improvement and repeatedly witnessed inefficient systems that bogged down worker’s productivity leading her to launch Tallyfy, software that empowers teams to manage any project seamlessly; Sofi Sek applied her business and photography background to create beautiful handmade Senegalese goods and donates partial proceeds to building of a girls’ STEAM school in Senegal. Join us for an hour of inspiration and Q &A with these amazing international women!
