Mia Merrill graduated from NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study and received her Masters from Columbia University, with a concentration in Social Enterprise Administration. By nature of living in NYC, Mia was exposed to a variety of entrepreneurs - everything from bodega owners to million dollar tech start-ups - and was lucky enough to get involved with Interplay Ventures upon graduating from her masters program. As Director of Talent at Interplay, Mia saw first hand what it takes to be a founder. Upon being recruited by the Co-Founder and CEO of Nomad Financial, Jonathan Gass, to lead their People and Culture Operation, the two teamed up to create a platform for industry disrupters and leaders; the Candid Entrepreneur. Mia is now the Head of Talent at The Wing, a co-working space and community for women. An avid conversationalist, Mia enjoys meeting people from different walks of life and motivating audiences to join forces on behalf of the greater good.
