Grace Tiscareño-Sato, Gracefully Global Group, LLC
Graciela Tiscareño-Sato is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, School of Environmental Design. Her global sustainability experience began while leading the Green Enterprise Initiative at Munich-headquartered Siemens Enterprise Networks. She helped enterprises understand the economic and environmental value of collaboration technologies. Once adopted, these solutions dramatically reduced corporations’ real estate needs, energy needs, employee commutes and their overall carbon footprints.

Her thought leadership pieces have published in the U.S. and Europe including Environmental Leader, Hispanic MBA, Communications News and many others. She earned a Masters degree in International Management from Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington while on active duty flight status with the U.S. Air Force. In November 2010, she received “Entrepreneur of the Year” honors at the LATINAStyle Magazine Gala in Washington D.C.
Maggie Sandoval, NFTE Alumnus
Maggie is the founder and owner of Noxz, Inc. in the Hollywood area of California. With a love for all kinds of bags, from purses to backpacks, she has made a business out of her passion. One of her biggest challenges yet has been finding a way to get her product to the public so that people can see and buy them. Maggie sees business in her future: “I see myself being successful in opening a business or coming up with ideas for a business where me and my brother can become business partners.” Grateful for this opportunity, Maggie says she feels more excited and open-minded to learn new things, and she can’t wait for what comes next.
