About the Talker
Driven by the idea that creativity can change the world and by the Martin Luther King Jr. quote, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is – What are you doing for others?,” Sonja has dedicated herself to creating businesses that foster entrepreneurship, spread creative thinking, and grow community.
She was recently named “1 of 30 Women Entrepreneurs Changing the World” by fashion mogul Eileen Fisher, and Los Angeles Magazine honored her as one of LA’s Top 10 Most Inspiring Women. Sonja is best known for her Unique USA events, the world’s largest made-in-America shopping events that she started in 2008.
Fueled by her passion for seeing people grow and become more successful through play and being creative, Sonja launched CAMP, a creative business conference, in 2013. After witnessing the amazing success and positive results of CAMP, Sonja decided to create a permanent place for entrepreneurs and creative thinkers… And so The Unique Space was born – an 18,000 sq ft building in downtown LA’s Arts District that houses a co-working space, 14 private offices and an event space.
