Description

Are you curious about entrepreneurship but not sure how to begin? Attend the Business Plan Practicum “Resource Night” sessions each week and learn the essentials of business planning first-hand from local entrepreneurs. 

The January 7 session will include an overview of topics to be covered throughout the quarter, a presentation on the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship and upcoming competitions. The guest speaker will be Ambika Singh, Chief Bosslady of Armoire, an on-demand wardrobe company.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School, Ambika works to make women’s lives a bit easier with Seattle-based startup- high-tech, high-touch company, Armoire, which offers a true “wardrobe as service” experience.
Passionate, upbeat, and success-driven, Ambika has worked across diverse contexts in organizations both small and large, with roles in marketing, business development, product management, SEO and social media. Additionally, she played a key role in the creation of internet startups Rover.com and TravelPost.com as well as two major Microsoft product launches: Internet Explorer 8 and Windows 7.

In 2018, Ambika was featured in the Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 list, has been featured in The Seattle Times, and has been invited to speak at Amazon, Microsoft, American Express, Harvard Business School, MIT, and the UW Foster School of Business.
