I have known Stephenie for about 15 years now and have always found here to be a very hard working and determined person. She is one of the ... few people that I know that actually puts here ideas into action. While working in the wine business for many years I know she always felt that there was a place in the market for a more sophisticated an fun approach to drinking wine in a bar or restaurant setting that the younger crowd just didn't have access to. Hence the launch of Maven Cocktails. I have been impressed by not only Stephenie's vision towards making Maven a reality but here persistence in staying steadfast in her beliefs and pursuing this dream one step at a time. I could not recommend Stephenie more highly to be part of a group of motivated entrepreneurs and think that the group would greatly benefit from having someone of here character involved. Thanks you for the opportunity to speak on her behalf.

They're my friends  •  CEO / Managing Partner, ChangeCorp - Mobile Solutions in Emerging Markets and Founder & CEO, Foundation For Social Change.
Stephenie has the perfect temperament and vision as an entrepreneur. She takes every set back or win the same way: as an opportunity to eval ... uate and course correct the mission and goals. She's relentless without being blind to the real issues. She plans and executes, but also can adjust to market challenges. She's convincing as to the goals and ultimate bottom line value she needs to achieve, while at the same time can communicate the realistic issues that are part of any start up. Most of all...she has a thorough knowledge of her industry and where the short- and long-term opportunities are given market tastes, conditions and consumer appeal.
