Join the group (both women and men) if you are in fintech in NYC! www.meetup.com/NYC-Fintech-Women

New York, September 2008
Sophie, a graduate of Leeds University, finally gave up her advertising day job earlier this year in order to make her “side hustle” her “main hustle!” In February she launched www.vignettewine.com, a wine consultancy that produces creative wine experiences. In Sophie's words, "it's early days… but so far it was the best decision I have made. The hardest step is that first one!"
Sophie hosts private and public sessions and corporate events from large to small. In fact she is hosting two art-inspired, experiential wine evenings at the Leyden Gallery in Spitalfields on 24th October and 21st November, and is offering Mountbatten alumni a 20% discount off the ticket price!
