We Rise by Lifting Others

Our founder and CEO René Shimada Siegel had a 10-year career in Silicon Valley. 

PR, marketing, communications, events. Corporate, agency, startups. Laid off twice.
Had three kids in five years. Cared for a father-in-law with Alzheimer’s.

The ah-hah moment came at 3 am at a 24-hour copy shop in NYC.
René was 9-months pregnant, beyond exhausted, and had to redo all the press materials for a huge launch that fell apart during the midnight rehearsal. There had to be a better way to do the work she loved and still have a life.

So in 1997, she created one.
