Christen Montero, MBA, is an entrepreneur, business coach and artist raised in Riverside, CA. She currently leads technology innovation in both the public and private sectors. She has a B.A. in Holistic Study of the Mind, Metaphysics, Marketing and Education from University of Redlands and received her master’s degree at age 24. Montero started her career as a child model and actor in the entertainment industry which led her to assisting large companies with marketing such as Coca-Cola, Citi Bank and Diageo, all while going to school full-time. She later transitioned into the tech industry where she helped Google market their virtual and augmented reality product line at conferences, trade shows and VIP events. Eventually, she went on to help her father’s management consulting and executive coaching firm with a focus on helping to bring about transformational change within companies through LEAN/TPS methodologies.
Currently, she is Co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer at Blue™, a tech start-up that was recently spotlighted for innovation at South By Southwest (SXSW) 2018 and awarded 1st place for innovation by Riverside County, California. Christen is an expert in human behavior, product positioning and consciousness. She has a passion to help build stronger global communities and believes in the importance of education and investing in youth.
“I never thought I’d be flying to London for something like this. As a woman of color and immigrant parents from two different countries, I’ve struggled and fought against constant stereotypes in education, business and entertainment but the best choice I made was never giving up and always sticking to my values and self-worth. Get to know yourself, love yourself, and find your strength to break barriers and close the gaps for all women in business.” Says Christen Montero.
