Matchmaker, Matchmaker: A Conversation with “The Contractor Whisperer”

« All Events

Join us for a conversation with leading design entrepreneurs Wendy Goodman and Jean Brownhill. Wendy, the legendary design editor of New York magazine, has been like a fairy godmother to Jean, a trained architect who founded Sweeten, a free renovation matchmaking service connecting the design trade and homeowners with vetted general contractors. What did Wendy see in Jean’s entrepreneurial spirit that made her an early believer? How did “The Contractor Whisperer” (as New York calls Jean) translate her personal renovation nightmare into a dream company with $1 billion projects in the pipeline? How can more women succeed in mostly male-dominated industries?
