MHCDC recently chatted with two Mount Holyoke grads and small business owners to learn about their experiences as female entrepreneurs in DC. Read about them below:
Monica Grover (MHC Class of 99), owner of Bazaar Spices, Washington DC’s first locally-owned and operated gourmet spice shop, is a creative leader and entrepreneur with several years of experience in business development, community building, digital marketing, and communications. Throughout her business career, Grover’s dynamic use of photography and video technology has demonstrably enhanced organizations’ brand awareness and expanded development efforts. Grover received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and Italian from MHC, as well as a Master of Arts degree in Sports Management from USF. In addition, Grover’s understanding of local, community-based retailing gained by extensive work at her parents’ grocery business for over 20 years has assisted her in making Bazaar Spices a unique shopping destination and experience for all visitors.
Sarah Frimpong (Frim) (MHC 2011) is the Founder and CEO of Broodjes & Bier, a prepared foods company based in Washington, DC. Prior to founding Broodjes & Bier in 2014, she worked in corporate sales connecting best in class solution providers with thought leaders across industries. Born just outside the District, but raised in South America and West Africa, she’s chosen to call DC home again after 20 years away. Frim graduated cum laude from Mount Holyoke College with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and English.
