Exposed NYC: An Initiative by SMPLCT Lab

Feb 28, 2015

I had the pleasure to moderate an exciting panel in the Exposed NYC about entrepreneurs developing environmentally-conscious behaviors using meditation, yoga, mindfulness, nutrition, and wellness in our everyday life. Yoga is a passion of mine which I strive to practice diligently to harvest the benefits for my life, health and work as a CEO. It was hosted at The Farm, a cool co-working space in Soho. My panel, “Breaking Down: Mind, Body, and Soul” included Nitika Chopra (Founder, Bella Life), Elizabeth Wilkes (Founder, Exuberancy), Veronica Ruelas (Founder, AshramChic) and Nicole Cardoza (Founder, Yoga Foster). Thank you Virgillia Pruthi (Founder, Network of Women) and Cynthia Hellen (CEO & Founder of SMPLCT Lab) for a very inspiring day!

At the end of Day 3, I needed to take a long yoga class, because my mind was overflowing from the adrenaline of networking and interesting conversations with entrepreneurs from around the world about the future of investment and sharing economy, the Internet of Things and education technology. I admire Derek Anderson for his vision for establishing Startup Grind in 2010. Prior to that, he was a founder entrepreneur himself and started his career in Electronic Arts. Here are some tweets from the conference.
