Speaking at April’s Meetup are:
Minda Aguhob just organized the first TEDxBushwick. Her personal mission is to elevate the level of love in action in the world. She empowers people to synergize their collective genius with the most effective and loving leaders, projects and organizations, via this TEDx event.
Based in both New York City and San Francisco, Minda is leading a wearable tech venture, Peakfoqus, designing elegant timepieces for health & safety monitoring – and bringing the postwar generation to the mobile revolution.
Her work in Sandy Relief — where Minda saw mediocre performance by large organizations and *amazing* performance by individual leaders with totally committed hearts and love — motivated the founding of Love Performs, a social media video workshop for passionate people with purpose, who make things happen.
A former elite endurance athlete, Minda races for charity and has raised over $30,000 for rare cancer research, on behalf of her cousin Yvette Guerzon, who suffered from leukemia. Minda holds a masters degree in human development & psychology from Harvard University.
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tenacious entrepreneur. Strategic thinker. Lifelong learner.
Her entrepreneurial spirit developed out of necessity at an early age when her family emigrated from a rural village in Fuzhou, China to the US and started a Chinese restaurant. As one of two English speakers in her family, she was responsible for managing the day-to-day affairs of the business for over 8 years.
After two years as a Teach for America corps member teaching in a low income public school in Brooklyn, she partnered with her business partner to transform his side gig into a full scale design/strategy consulting firm called Hyperion Media. They work with early-stage companies to build out their brand and technology at their most critical juncture. From building investor pitch decks to designing and developing their user interface and experience, they help reshape brands, strategies, and products. Clients that have leveraged their insight and expertise have gone on to raise over $24M from the leading angel investors and venture capital firms around the world.
she volunteers her time as a tutor and mentor a few of her former students. She is an avid long distance runner with three marathons and many half marathons under her belt. She plans to run a marathon on every continent!
