Xiao Wang is the founder of Boundless, a startup helping immigrant families navigate the immigration process. When Xiao was young, his family spent five months' rent paying their immigration attorney to make sure they didn't lose their chance to stay in America. This made affordable, reliable immigration services the problem Xiao felt compelled to solve. He knew becoming an entrepreneur would require hard work and sacrifice (not all rainbows and unicorns), but says it's been worth the struggle.

Mikaela is a Founder/CEO and executive coach. In 2015, she founded Reverb, to help companies create healthy, inclusive cultures that scale. Last year, Reverb was named as the second fastest growing company in the state by PSBJ. Before Reverb, Mikaela held HR leadership roles at several Northwest companies. She enjoys being part of the Seattle startup community, where she gets to work with mission driven leaders. Her book Female Firebrands: Stories and Techniques to Ignite Change, Take Control, and Succeed in the Workplace was released in January 2020.
