Tarul Kode Tripathi and Tejal Angolkar, founder of Sanaya Set
“As first-generation South Asian womxn, our life experiences have shown us that feminism goes beyond gender. We believe in intersectional feminism: understanding our overlapping identities and how these factors impact the way we experience oppression and discrimination. To us, this means recognizing our diversity makes us stronger, makes us beautiful. Most importantly, it means pulling each other up.”
Hannah Bae, founder of Noona’s Ice Cream
“My company, Noona's Ice Cream, focuses on making Asian-inspired ice cream flavors in surprisingly delicious ways. Noona means big sister in Korean, and I named the company after the word to represent women entrepreneurs and bring a unique approach to culinary combinations with a modern Asian flair.”
