Event description

Description

XO Group has long been at the epicenter of female founded businesses and the company is excited to highlight its network of friends who thrive within the growing ecosystem of female-led businesses. Bimonthly, the XO Group FoundHERS Network will host a free, networking event anchored by a fireside chat with those who embody the FoundHERS concept.

This month, Executive Vice President of National Enterprise Group for XO Group, Jennifer Garrett, will interview Melissa Ben-Ishay, Founder of Baked by Melissa, in an intimate setting about her professional journey with the goal of encouraging, motivating and inspiring others to achieve their personal goals and dreams as well, whatever they may be.

Melissa Ben-Ishay is a mom, a baker, and the founder of Baked by Melissa, the New York City-based brand famous for its signature, bite-size cupcakes and treats. Passionate about baking since childhood and with the idea that people should be able to taste more flavors without a post-dessert guilt trip, she decided to do what she loved and launched Baked by Melissa in 2008 after being fired from her job in advertising. Today, the company operates 13 stores and ships nationwide. Ben-Ishay currently serves as the company’s President and Chief Product Officer. In October of 2017, she released her first cookbook, Cakes by Melissa.
