Sonia Sahney Nagar

I am an entrepreneur, former engineer, and forever geek. I'm currently the co-founder & CEO of Pickie, a venture-backed eCommerce start-up that uses social data to make shopping recommendations. I started my career as an engineer in General Motors' Advanced Engineering group, and I've previously worked as a Media strategist for Booz & Company, a Sr. Product Manager for Amazon, and did a very brief stint as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs. I have a B.S. with honors in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and a MBA from Harvard Business School.

I live in a very small New York apartment with my amazingly supportive husband, Amit. I'm extremely close to my family, and value having "good people" around me. I'm from the Midwest, but I'm completely intolerant of being cold. I thrive on Starbucks, sour gummy candy, and Diet Mountain Dew.

The best way to get in touch with me is via twitter (@ssahney) or email ( in that order.
