Sara Schiller, co-founder of MEET, spoke at PSFK about the inception of her company and how to foster creativity among the corporate mindset

Well that’s exactly the thought process one of our PSFK 2015 speakers and co-founder of MEET, Sara Schiller, went through at her old position at Starwood Hotels.
