Soraya Darabi
Co-Founder, Zady

Soraya is a renaissance woman. From her early days at the New York Times, bringing the iconic news organization onto social media, to her days co-founding Foodspotting, she's been at the forefront of new media for many years. She's been named a Fast Company "Most Creative People in Business," one of Inc.'s "30 Under 30" and one of AdAge's "25 People in Media to Follow on Twitter." This is why, when Zady launched, we paid especially close attention to this lifestyle and shopping platform filled with beautiful goods crafted by makers from around the globe. Named one of the 10 most innovative companies in retail by Fast Company only months after its debut, Zady will, without any doubt, turn the retail industry on its head. Sessions with Soraya will support The Bootstrap Project.

Soraya's Cause: The Bootstrap Project
The Bootstrap Project is a non-profit organization. Our mission is to create a sustainable platform to promote and retain centuries-old crafts and customs. By joining Bootstrap you allow artisans—who act as the catalyst for their whole communities—to take pride in their culture and end their own poverty. It’s trade not aid.
