Jenny talks about her journey through life as an entrepreneur and the pleasant surprises she’s experienced along the way.
About the speaker
Originally from Louisiana, Jenny Amaraneni moved to San Diego in 2009 to pursue her Master of Business Administration at San Diego State University. It was during her graduate studies that Amaraneni learned of the great need for eye care in the world. Two statistics stuck in her mind – over 1 billion people lack access to eye care, and 80% of the world’s blindness is preventable. Shortly after graduating, she launched SOLO Eyewear, a line of eco-friendly sunglasses where each pair purchased funds eye care for people in need. To date, SOLO Eyewear has funded eye care for 13,000+ people across 32 countries.
