Aineth started to think about the catalyzing power of businesses since she was very young. She especially started to focus her attention on the impact of businesses from the perspective of sustainability while in college. With a major in Industrial Engineering and minor in Entrepreneurship from a public Mexican university and studies in innovation and natural resources, right now, as a PhD candidate in Industrial Engineering at Penn State, she hopes to generate practical alternatives that help organizations achieve sustainability.

By participating in FMS, she intends to enhance her skill set and effectiveness while networking with knowledgeable people in the area of impact investment but, most of all, through field experience.

In addition to helping businesses generate well-being through good management and operational efficiency, her dream life includes the creation of a few enterprises all of them with social impact.
