What school and year did you graduate Georgetown?

I am a 2010 graduate of Georgetown College finishing with an Arabic major and economics and government double minors. My co-founder is a 2009 graduate of Georgetown College as well.

How are you currently engaged or plan to engage in the venture community?

I am the founder of a new online marketplace Modavanti. Italian for “fashion forward,” Modavanti will be an online marketplace for high- end sustainable fashion. It will be the site for consumers interested in buying eco-friendly and ethically-sourced clothing and accessories that fit their values without compromising on style. Modavanti’s mission is to promote the sustainable fashion movement by building an active community around a unique shopping experience and capitalizing on the growth in online sales and the growth in conscious consumerism. Visitors to the site will find a carefully-curated collection of clothes, profiles of the designers behind the labels, and an extensive database to help them explore and discover new brands. We are currently in the fundraising phase and would be interested in connecting with fellow Hoyas in the venture capital scene.

What is your Georgetown email (if no longer active, please provide current email)?
