Dis·rupt·or /disˈrəptər/ : “A company or form of technology that causes radical change in an existing industry or market by means of innovation.” That’s exactly what Christy Serrato, CEO & Founder of Pair Anything, is doing! As a woman of color entrepreneur, Christy’s PairAnything platform will be the catalyst for disrupting the gender and racial imbalance in the wine industry, as well as reimagines the wine experience to be more accessible. Knowing that women make up 80% of wine purchase decisions in the U.S., Christy hopes PairAnything will empower the industry to push to cater to the diverse female palate and pocketbook.
In addition to pioneering PairAnything (which has excelled due to her success in banking, financial technology, IT security, and Enterprise Software), Christy is also the Director of the non-profit organization Sacramento Entrepreneurship Academy, the longest-running entrepreneurial program in the Sacramento region. Not only does she educate and mentor aspiring entrepreneurs, she hopes to serve as a positive role model for underrepresented founders–after all, representation matters.
