Jill's Impressive Journey
Jill Richmond is the CMO and Co-founder of Kraver. She became the co-founder of Kraver after a very impressive string of jobs in government and international organizations. Jill's interest in food and front of house ("FoH") operations began when she built pop-up restaurants in DC and London six years ago. She believed that her experience could be translated into FoH products for restaurants by using customer information to personalize their dining experiences at restaurants.
Jill has spent several years working at the intersection of food and technology. She specifically targeted mobile payments, FoH solutions for restaurants, and major innovations in supply chain management. The Kraver team (which includes Von Raees, her business partner) has been watching the trend in cognitive companies and they still believe that their competitors do not simplify and preempt what the customers actually want.
Scriptd came out of Denise Hewett's experience as a producer. She became a producer to create impact through story. Denise realized that she could have a larger impact by creating what is now Scriptd.
Scriptd is a place to find screenplays and allow the public to engage with the format for the first time ever. Scriptd ultimately can show up for the stories society wants to see and play a part in them getting made. Denise's goal is to see an entertainment industry where everyone can see themselves on and off screen properly represented.
If you want to see Denise Hewett's company, Scriptd, at work, they will be doing a live reading of the pilot, Horsewomen, on April 27th, at 8pm, at Art Share LA.
Nicola Angelos is the creator of Shagbagg--a handbag line inspired by the 1960s that infuses soft cotton shag paired with high quality leather & metals. Shagbagg was conceptualized out of a dream she had while studying fashion design at the Art Institute in Miami. At the time, Nicola was having an influx of ideas after switching from law school to fashion, however, she felt this design was unlike anything else she had ever seen before. Nicola sketched the bag from here dream after she awoke, designed the logo (that day), and since then have been living in Los Angeles pursuing her dream of getting ShagBagg to become a household for the past 5 years.
