Director, BOC Women’s Business Center
Sujatha’s introduction to small business came at a young age, helping her father in their family business. She later lived in several Latin America countries, witnessing first-hand the catalytic role that microenterprises play in building personal, household, and community wealth. Meeting diverse entrepreneurs from Cuba to Guatemala and from Chile to Brazil she learned that wealth can be defined in terms of access, knowledge, opportunity, economic growth, and empowerment.
Since 2010, Sujatha has worked with hundreds of women from across Brooklyn and New York City who are working to launch and grow their own businesses. She is inspired by their creativity, resourcefulness, vision and drive. She believes that discussions about building businesses allow women to contemplate and define action plans related to increasing knowledge, building credit, growing savings, and creating personal opportunity
She is a graduate of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and Bryn Mawr College.
