Sarah talented, determined, resourceful - and one of the best people I know. Her experience includes everything from manufacturing to media, ... fashion to sustainability. And her courage and level-headedness make her as powerful as an entrepreneur as she was in the corporate world. She builds for growth--and starts with clear vision of the end point. She has the tenacity to see a business through as it scales...and the network to fill any knowledge gaps that arise. I wouldn't hesitate to fund her. And I will always be on her team.
