Sophia Parsa

Toot App Inc & Mountain Gate Series
Co-Founder & CEO

An entrepreneur, community builder, and passionate leader, Sophia Parsa wants to see a world where technology is used to make education universally accessible. Sophia draws her largest influence from her father, a successful tech entrepreneur, and attributes her long-standing ambition to build an empire to a pivotal moment in her childhood in which she accompanied her father to CES at the age of 5. After the seed was planted, she never saw another course for herself, going on to start her first business at the young age of 20.
Today, Sophia has developed into the embodiment of entrepreneurship, serving as the CEO and co-founder of toot, an education technology startup that supports traditional education systems with a suite of tutoring products. For her work at toot, Sophia has been recognized as a leader in education, selected as one of Forbes' 30 under 30 in the education category. In addition to her passion for education, Sophia is also the curator and founder of Mountain Gate, a community that catalyzes life-changing discussions and collaborations for young, revolutionary leaders across all spheres including education, music, social impact, space exploration, think tanks, and more. Mountain Gate has grown to 1000 members and featured notable speakers and guests such as Nicolas Berggruen, Keith Ferrazzi, Loretta Whitesides, Bobby Turner, Brock Pierce, Harley Pasternak, Sabrina Kay (founder of The Art Institute), Payal Kadika (Ceo of ClassPass), Gunnar Lovelace (Ceo of Thrive Market), Wayne Chang ( co-founder of Crashlytics, Dropbox, and Napster), and more.
Sophia is an unstoppable force - her ability to establish community and bring people together in conjunction with her entrepreneurial spirit and determination demonstrate that she has a vision to make a lasting positive impact and there is no doubt that she can make that vision a reality.
