Before starting Loop & Tie, Sara worked UBS in New York City as broker in institutional equity sales. She constantly had a need for quick thank you gifts, but all too often got hung up on what to send. Her annoyance eventually built into a large enough frustration that she decided to x this problem, for herself and others. Sara founded Loop & Tie to oer companies the easiest way to send gifts that are anything but generic. She has been an active member at Capital Factory, both in their accelerator and incubator and frequently speaks on panels focused on entrepreneurship, women in entrepreneurship and consumer technology. She’s a graduate of the Austin Technology Institute, has been actively involved in SXSW, both as a speaker and a judge and has served as a mentor for undergraduates at the University of Texas’ Longhorn Startup Semester Program. Sara is a native Austinite and a graduate of the University of Virginia where she earned a B.A. in Economics.
