Interview with Asmau Ahmed

Asmau Ahmed

Founder/CEO Asmau Ahmed, brings over 11 years of experience in chemical engineering, math/statistical data analysis and strategic consulting to Plum Perfect. She holds an MBA from Columbia Business School and a B.S. with honors in Chemical Engineering from the University of Virginia. 

Her story begins with years of unsuccessfully navigating store aisles in search of make-up and clothing colors to make her look her best.  As an engineer, beauty & fashion enthusiast,  she was compelled to address the problem with technology.  And so she built Plum Perfect, a visual search engine that provides instant personalized recommendations to shoppers using their photos.
