Creativity is contagious
Meet the team spreading that joy.
Monica Kang - Founder & CEO
Monica loves building bridges, relationships, and communities.
She believes that change is possible when more people are able to understand and integrate into different worlds simultaneously. That integration is possible with creative thinking and an open mind. For Monica, the two worlds she bridges are entrepreneurship and public policy.
Prior to InnovatorsBox®, Monica specialized in nuclear nonproliferation and served as a contract support to the U.S. government, and a non-resident Kelly Fellow at Pacific Forum CSIS. She has lived and worked abroad, both at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland and at Chosun Newspaper in Seoul, South Korea. She earned her M.A. degree in Strategic Studies at SAIS, Johns Hopkins University, and her B.A. at Boston University. To satisfy her love for entrepreneurship and creativity, she also became a StartingBloc Fellow and mentor, Hive fellow, Design Thinking in DC member, and a Startup Weekend organizer and facilitator in DC. Monica is also a Certified Professional Diversity Coach (CPDC), and is proud to be a part of the Coach Diversity Institute, which is based on the standards of the International Coach Federation.
Monica's love for interactive experiences, safe spaces, and vulnerability reflects deeply in the curriculum she is building at InnovatorsBox. Her deepest joy comes from being able to spark the 'aha' moments in the attendees and participants of her programs because the best learnings comes from 'being in the moment.' She is a strong believer of learning by doing, and focuses on creating a safe space for deep inner search and discovery.
