Faces in the Crowd: Sophia Quintero

EnjoyHQ founder and CEO Sophia Quintero’s story is a real-life rags to riches tale that has taken her from her native Venezuela, which she fled as a refugee, to London and then to Santa Monica, California. As a refugee to the United Kingdom, she made her living cleaning toilets, while also learning to speak English, all the while pursuing a college education and entrenching herself in the local start-up scene.

EnjoyHQ’s platform is a web-based database that brings together data to help product research and UX teams build products faster and better. Quintero founded her start-up in London, but has since moved to the United States to access the larger market there.
