Before Sara caught the start up bug she was working in NYC at UBS as broker in institutional equity sales. She constantly had a need for quick thank you gifts, but all too often got hung up on what to send. Her annoyance eventually built into a large enough frustration that she had to fix this problem, for herself and others. Sara founded Loop & Tie to offer companies the easiest way to send corporate gifts that are anything but generic. She has been an active member at Capital Factory, both in their accelerator and incubator and frequently speaks on panels focused on entrepreneurship, women in entrepreneurship and consumer technology. She’s a graduate of the Austin Technology Institute. She’s been actively involved in SXSW, both as a speaker and a judge and has served as a mentor for undergraduates at the University of Texas’ Longhorn Startup Semester Program. Sara is a native Austinite and a graduate of the University of Virginia where she earned a B.A. in Economics.
