READ VOYAGE INTERVIEW

“A new way forward”

Her new entrepreneurial journey was ignited by the entrepreneurial workshop V-WISE, hosted and run by IVMF. It was empowered by a Global Supply Chain Class taught by her college professor/mentor Richard Sarabia, DBA and the initial contribution of classmate Paula Pereira da Silva. 

Amor Umbrella started as a class project, inspired by a love for unique umbrellas and by a desire to provide an impactful solution to the damage caused to our environment due to the sheer amount of broken umbrellas that ends everyday into the landfills.
