Amina Porter is the CEO of PS, a private, luxury airport terminal for commercial flights. The service offers commercial passengers an elevated travel experience that allows them to bypass the stress of the normal airport terminal. But before Amina was trailblazing in the aviation and travel space, she was making moves across finance, real estate, hospitality, and even had a side gig in e-commerce.

Babba C Rivera: Ceremonia Founder and CEO

Babba C Rivera is the founder and CEO of Ceremonia, a line of clean haircare products rooted in Latinx heritage. In 2020, she launched the brand with a single product—a scalp oil inspired by personal childhood rituals and her father’s early career as a hairdresser in Chile. In the three years since, Ceremonia has grown its product line, opened a brick-and-mortar store in New York, and launched in over 500 Sephora locations, becoming the first Latinx-founded haircare brand sold at the retailer. Rivera also recently raised $10 million in a Series A, making her one of only 58 Latinas to raise over $1 million in VC funding. But before Rivera was building a haircare empire, she was leading marketing teams at companies like Uber and Away, and even operated her own brand marketing company called ByBabba.

Kaelen Haworth: Fashion Designer and Creator of Absolutely Fabrics

Kaelen Haworth has carved a unique path for herself in the fashion world, gaining institutional knowledge and refining her point of view every step of the way. After graduating from Parsons, Haworth set out to create her eponymous fashion line Kaelen, which was accepted into the CFDA Fashion Incubator and then sold by retailers such as Intermix and Shopbop. Taking her learnings from that experience, she then launched a second line, the direct-to-consumer and size-inclusive brand Second Sight. But after realizing that her favorite part of the job was curation, Haworth pivoted in 2020 from designing to editorial and celebrity styling. Now, she’s embarking on yet another journey within the industry: This September, Haworth is opening a retail destination in Toronto called Absolutely Fabrics, a concept store that will stock both designer and vintage pieces, serve as a studio space, and host programming like trunk shows, shoots, and product-launch events.

Allison Statter and Sherry Jhawar founded Blended Strategy Group in 2015 as a celebrity and influencer marketing agency, and since then, the company has evolved to include services in integrated marketing, PR, social media, and more. They continue to build brands at Blended, but just last year, they also set out to create their own: a line of aluminum-free deodorant called Nez.

After graduating from Harvard Business School, Jhawar went on to be a founding member and the head of global marketing at the lip balm company EOS.

In 2006, she stepped into the role of host on Top Chef, and in her 19 seasons on the competition show, she received four Emmy nominations for Outstanding Host and became an executive producer. But earlier this year, Lakshmi announced her exit from the show and her plan to embark on a new path.

Eventually, her work was recognized by Vogue France, and just a year later, she signed on as makeup director at Dior. Over the next decade, she took on roles at beauty companies such as Sephora, Estée Lauder, and Guerlain. Along the way, she developed her own aesthetic and technique, which she began to share on her popular YouTube channel.

Over the past 10 years, Guinness has written and recorded four albums, the latest of which will be released this November.

Camille Charrière is widely known as one of the original fashion influencers. Today, in addition to sharing her life and style with her 1.4 million Instagram followers, she’s a contributing editor for Elle UK and has written for publications such as Harper’s Bazaar and British Vogue. But before Charrière was a leader in fashion media, her early career looked quite different. After graduating from one of the top bilingual law programs in Paris, Charrière took a job at a hedge fund in London but quickly realized she was craving a more creative outlet. While on holiday, Charrière became inspired while scrolling through an early fashion blog, and within the hour, her own blog was up and running. With her digital presence, she was able to land jobs at fashion retailers such as Net-a-Porter and Matches. Eventually, she left these jobs to pursue her career as a blogger and influencer full-time.

Alongside her co-founders, DeBaun has grown Blavity into a full-on media and tech empire, and today, her portfolio of brands reaches 250 million readers each month. In building Blavity, DeBaun raised $12 million from top venture capital firms, making her a part of the only 2% of women who receive venture funding in Silicon Valley.
