Sara Sakowitz '18CC is the Founder of Bite, a data-driven healthy snack company. Previously, she was the Founder of Blue Moon Box, a science education company, for which she has been featured on Good Morning America and profiled in the Huffington Post. She was named to the Crains NY Business’ inaugural 20 Under 20 and the NYC Economic Development Corporation’s 10 Under 20. In 2016, she became the youngest first prize winner of Columbia University’s Venture Competition. A finalist in the 2014 Intel Science Talent Search and First Grand Award winner of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, she also won the National “Made with Code” Prize from Google and Ellen Degeneres. She is a Partner at Dorm Room Fund, a student-run venture fund backed by First Round Capital. Sara is currently completing her final year at Columbia College, where she was the President of the Columbia Organization of Rising Entrepreneurs (CORE). Through CORE, she leads a university-wide effort to support entrepreneurship on campus. In her spare time, she researches consumer decision making at Columbia Business School and loves learning new languages.
We will hate to say goodbye to her at the end of this year but we have a feeling that her impact on the world will be heard all the way back here on the Morningside campus.
Sara will be announcing several panels and speakers at the Festival Conference.
