Sierra Smith

Sierra's passion is scaling great ideas into even better businesses.  She has a strategy and operations background working for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America as a management fellow, strategy director, and ultimately chief of staff to the CEO. During her time there she worked intimately with every aspect of the business including finance, marketing, and strategy to move ideas to action. She then took her skills to a retail start-up, Plan de Ville, to help them build the necessary infrastructure and processes to scale their company. Sierra has a B.S. from the University of Notre Dame and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. While she lives in New York City, she will always be an Iowan at heart.

Taylor Wiegele

Taylor finds his roots in Kansas City and his home in California. His B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley and M.B.A. from Harvard Business School have helped fulfill his dream of solving everyday problems for everyday people. He’s spent time in Retail at Target Corporation, Consumer Goods at The Clorox Company, and Aerospace at SpaceX. During his time there he’s built omnichannel merchandising strategies, invented filtration products and redesigned packaging, and developed air filtration systems for space travel. Zorpads is illustrative of Taylor’s dream--redesigning mundane products and infusing them with new technology and he can’t wait for them to blast off!
