We are thrilled to introduce the MBA Mama community to our latest MBA Mama of the Month (MOTM), Lourdes Ramon, a native of Puerto Rico and a graduate of NYU’s Stern School of Business. Lourdes has a background in engineering and worked for Kraft Foods doing research and development prior to her MBA. After completing business school, Lourdes returned to Kraft as a brand manager in a marketing role. When Kraft relocated their NY office to Chicago, Lourdes took a brand management job with Univision.

Recently, Lourdes decided to venture into the wonderful world of entrepreneurship. In the video blog featured here: Lourdes tells us about the inspiration behind the creation of her company, Kids’ Candor, a bilingual solution for early child development through play, music, and guided human interaction.

I was inspired by my children. I wanted them to learn Spanish, understand in Spanish, write in Spanish and think and just dream in Spanish.
