Irene Shih, CEO of Minds Matter San Francisco, has been invited to join San Francisco Business Times Leadership Trust, an exclusive community for influential business leaders, executives and entrepreneurs in the Bay Area.
Irene was chosen for membership by the San Francisco Business Times Leadership Trust Selection Committee due to her experience, leadership and influence in the local business landscape and beyond. Her organization, Minds Matter San Francisco, is an education nonprofit that helps low-income high school students rewrite their socio-economic future by providing dedicated mentorship, academic support, and lifelong professional community to students and alumni. Since 2010, 100 percent of Minds Matter San Francisco’s 120 graduates have gained acceptance to top universities, and 97 percent have graduated from college within 4 years.
“The Bay Area’s thriving business community is powered by leaders like Irene,” said Mary Huss, publisher of the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal. “We’re honored to be creating a space where the region’s business influencers come together to increase their impact on the community, build their businesses and connect with and strengthen one another.”
As an invited member, Irene will contribute articles to the San Francisco Business Times website and participate alongside fellow members in Expert Panels. She will connect and collaborate with a vetted network of local leaders in a members-only directory and a private forum on the group’s mobile app.
“I have always believed in the power of a united ecosystem, collaborating to solve the most pressing problems in our shared community. I am honored to join the San Francisco Business Times Leadership Trust, to connect and learn from other local business and thought leaders. It is my hope that our combined resources will amplify solutions and innovations for those who need it most in San Francisco,” shares Minds Matter San Francisco CEO Irene Shih.
The San Francisco Business Times Leadership Trust team is honored to welcome Irene to the community and looks forward to helping her elevate her personal brand, strengthen her circle of trusted advisors and position her to further impact the San Francisco business community and beyond.
