Tanya Alvarez is a Miami native of Colombian heritage. After graduating from Wellesley College in 2000 with a BA in International Relations, Tanya dove head first into the marketing world and has collected over fifteen years of international/US experience and an extensive resume including companies such as: Nike, US Olympics, and Diners Club International. By 2004, Tanya finally spread her entrepreneurial wings to start her own company in New York City, BlinkAds, an online international performance based marketing agency which was acquired in 2012. Since then, Tanya has founded, built, sold and invested in companies for the past 10 years.

Tanya is currently on a mission to improve the success rate of small businesses. This mission is the genesis of OwnersUP, a platform for solopreneurs to team up and grow faster.

But don’t think Tanya means strictly business. She also enjoys running and has boldly completed the 2001 Boston Marathon, 2005 New York City Triathlon, 2009 New York City Marathon, 2009 Timberman Half Iron Man, and 2015 Twin Lights Century Ride. Tanya’s other passion is traveling.

In this interview, Tanya and I discuss ways to team up as entrepreneurs and grow faster. Her platform is uniquely suited to do just that. Check it out here.
