Helene Kwong

Founder & Consultant | TAOpivot


Renaissance Woman: Always Wearing Several Hats



Daughter of immigrant entrepreneurs; an entrepreneur myself. I started TAOpivot (Feb. 2012 - July 2013), a company that helped find jobs and internships for international students in the U.S. Currently, I am building Ms. Kwong, a specialty baked goods business, and also #HashtagHustler, a Twitter consulting business for small businesses and large events/conferences. I am passionate about all forms of art, and currently partake in painting, drawing, writing, ceramics, and yarn crafts.

Specialties include immigration reform, international student affairs, career advice and coaching, Twitter and public speaking. I am also available to talk about baking, the restaurant business world (my parents owned a restaurant in our hometown, and all of us children worked there), creative writing, and women in business.
