How do you turn a hobby into a business? And how can that business lift up other women? Join us for a conversation with Barnard alumna and entrepreneur Kaylin Marcotte ’12. Kaylin is the founder & CEO of JIGGY, a direct-to-consumer jigsaw puzzle brand on a mission to modernize and elevate the humble jigsaw, and support female artists around the world.

This conversation will investigate how to build a business with a mission and support other women in the process. Kaylin will also share how she turned a hobby/interest/challenge into a thriving company and how you can do the same.

Prior to launching JIGGY, Kaylin founded Village Strategies, a marketing consultancy, and was the first employee at theSkimm, running its community marketing, social media and Skimm’bassadors.

Organizer Athena Center for Leadership at Barnard College

Organizer of SPARK with Kaylin Marcotte '12 :: Supporting Women Through Entrepreneurship

The Athena Center for Leadership at Barnard College was established in fall 2009 with an ambitious goal – to create a world renowned center dedicated to the advancement of women leaders. Not just any women leaders, but women who are visionary, bold, courageous, resilient and globally aware; women who embrace diversity and are determined to make the world a better place.

We are building a world where leadership is constantly re-imagined to reflect the needs of women and society and where it is commonplace for women to attain and exercise power.
