About the Organizer and Host:

Samaira Mehta, who was featured on TIME as one of the 8 Young Leaders to Shape the Decade, was covered by NBC, Today Show, Yahoo Finance, and has graced the pages of Vogue and BusinessInsider. She has spoken at over 70 conferences nationwide, including the United Nations (UN) on Intl. Women's Day, Mobile World Conference Barcelona, C2 Montreal, Google, and many others. Samaira has created an ecosystem to teach kids how to code.

This coding ecosystem consists of board games like CoderBunnyz, the most comprehensive coding board game ever, CoderMindz, the world's first-ever Artificial Intelligence based board game, and (soon to release) CoderMarz, a board game that introduces kids to coding and AI in an adventure through Mars, as well as curriculums, to help them go more in-depth with the board games. Currently, she's working on an app to streamline the way students learn how to code.

This is all towards her big goal of helping 1 billion kids learn how to code!

She is also an ambassador of ARM with their program Gen Arm 2Z. Gen Arm 2Z gives a voice to the generations of tomorrow, sharing the thoughts of kids today on technology as it's currently used and how it can be built for their future. It also gives a platform to the inspiring young trailblazers who are already hard at work defining tomorrow's technology. You can learn more about this program here.

Samaira, having gone through the ups and downs of creating products, managing the supply chain, launching multiple products, marketing, and 7 figure revenue generation, has found the recipe to build various successful businesses. Samaira is now ready to help create the next generation of entrepreneurs through her program BossBizz.
