Michelle & Amit Schlesinger

Simmi’s Bakehouse was born out of love, a lockdown, and the delicious twists and turns of life. I stopped practicing law and became a stay-at-home mom a few short months before the pandemic hit in 2020 and the world changed. I happily traded in billable hours and legal discovery issues for bibs and diapers. While in lockdown, I started baking more, and my dream of opening a bakery came into sharper focus. Read more>>

Alevtina (Tina) Usacheva

The Boxeat is a small women-owned Business, created and run by me (Tina) and my mother-in-law (Lora). And this is our story. I (Tina) have always loved cooking and enjoy every aspect of it. From the sparkled idea of the recipe inside my head to creating a final delicious meal and presentation. At the same time, Lora has a great designer and aesthetic eye on things. She has a fantastic talent for making every meal an art masterpiece. It is essential to mention that nothing of this won’t happened without the help of Chef Allen Susser. Working together on the perfection of the recipes, he also guided us through the internal kitchen processes with all patience and kindness. Read more>>

Diego Vega

Hello, my name is Diego and I started as a Latin DJ in 2012 because I met through a girlfriend with whom I went out. One of my good friends DJ Jimmy thanks to him I learned how to be a DJ and thanks to that profession I have shared Tarima with a lot of artists. I have traveled to different cities and countries, I have a good income.Easy it hasn’t always been you’re always going to find people who will support you and others that you’re not also going to find people who just want to see you badly. For me to get where I am I had to start from below and make myself known I even played for free or for any money they offered me to start, it was difficult but thanks to my talent that’s where I am now.

Yolanda Dugue

My journey as an educator started 17 years ago, however, my quest into entrepreneurship began in March 2021. One day I was working after school tutoring a group of students in my classroom. As I was walking around monitoring the students, I thought to myself, “I could be doing this for myself.” Literally, five minutes later, one of my colleagues comes to my classroom door and asks me, “Have you ever thought about tutoring?” I looked at her in shock, because I had not uttered my thoughts to anyone. I confessed that I had and she must’ve been God-sent. Read more>>

Maria Victoria Carrasquilla

It all started with a dream, but it was not until 2020 that I began to define a name that would set the tone for this long-awaited dream full of passion. From that moment, this cultural journey begins, starting from my roots, taking as inspiration the colors, experiences, and natural beauties of my country, from where my first Auyantepuy collection was born… this dream contains, being able to have a better world with less pollution. and become aware of reusing, reducing and recycling… that is why my work is done in ecological fabrics to contribute a grain of sand in this subject that I am very passionate about and in the same way encourage and educate our clients that you can look spectacular and contribute to the environment in the same way. Read more>>
