Eighth Episode: Systematic Helping Hands: Sarah Spear
While parenting her daughter with a developmental disability, Sarah Spear experienced firsthand the difficulty of finding accessible businesses. She learned other families were feeling this pain point, too. Sarah recognized the value in sharing resources and knowledge with one another and Empowered Together was born. Today, Empowered Together's marketplace helps folks discover, connect with, and recommend accessible businesses. Sarah has a history of successfully building ventures, from leading PharmaSecure, a HealthTech company in India, through its Series A funding to being the first Executive Director of the Arch Grants startup competition in St. Louis. Her gift for facilitating community and corporate groups gets people to look at things in a different way, curiously engaging with their world. She brings her experience as an entrepreneur, facilitator, and most important, as a disability advocate to Empowered Together. Please join us for what promises to be a moving conversation.
