YOUR COMMUNITY IS YOUR BUSINESS
Megan Haas is a cultural entrepreneur who comes from a family of explorers and innovators whose ideas and actions have shaped her own. Growing up she was immersed in several world-wide communities with strong social, cultural and creative values, and as a result has modeled her life and work around both developing healthy community culture, and learning from it.
From co-founding a ground-breaking company that put men all over the world in skirts, (the Utilikilts Co.), to developing a new culture around global self-health -- social impact has always been Megan's business model. Through incentivizing community she remains passionate and inspired by her work.
