Hispanic Heritage Month – Tanya Menendez

“Tanya Menendez approaches big, complex issues with an innovative vision, unparalleled drive, and a desire to create a better tomorrow for communities that need it the most. She founded her first company, Maker’s Row, to make the manufacturing process simple to understand and easy to access, serving over 200K businesses. Now she is co-founder and CEO of Snowball Wealth, a platform empowering people to make financial progress by helping them pay off debt, save, and invest.  She believes that student debt is one of the biggest challenges facing the current generation. Tanya experienced that pain and faced a huge financial burden that impacted her career and personal life. The Latinx community faces the widest pay and wealth gap. As a Latina with Central American roots, she’s excited to be building a product that makes student loan repayment easy to understand and helps users find ways to save money so they can start saving and investing.” – Ulu Ventures
