Featured by FastCompany as one of their “Most Creative People in Business”, Soraya is a cornerstone of the New York City startup scene. Responsible for helping the NYTimes adopt social media, Soraya is a 2-time entrepreneur, and has been named both a Mentor of the year by TechStars and a Young Global Leader by the World economic Forum. Today, she is the founder and general partner of Trail Mix Ventures, and is dedicated to leveling the playing field, as only 2.2% of VC dollars are invested in female founders.
