Yesterday morning, Tory appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe with Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor and Chair of the White House Council on Women and Girls, Arianna Huffington and Malene Barnett of Malene B custom carpets to talk to host Mika Brzezinski about entrepreneurship — more specifically, the 18 early stage women entrepreneurs who just graduated from a customized MBA-like course the Tory Burch Foundation did in collaboration with Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, Babson College and LaGuardia Community College. Malene, one of our new alums, shared her experience about the lessons learned while Valerie, who spoke at the graduation on Monday night, told her own personal tale about the switch to public service — and why.
