The young entrepreneur behind Venus Karma
Meet Valeria Mazzei, founder of Venus Karma which is a multi-faced online store that offers a wide range of products from ready-to-wear customized hoodies and t-shirts to corporate uniforms as well as home and beauty products. The company creates high-quality uniforms for corporates that include but are not limited to polo shirts and aprons. Most recently, it launched a Home and Beauty Section with vegan products that include; vintage candles, naturally-hand-made soaps, and breathable nail polish that is made in Italy.
Now 20 years old, Valeria began her journey as an entrepreneur in 2016 with a motto, “from the youth to the youth.” She is an inspiration to many young people; reminding them that they too can be entrepreneurs and can challenge the status quo while disrupting the entrepreneurship scene in Qatar. Valeria says that “Being an entrepreneur is a synonym of “independence” for [her].
It is an emotional process; when you win or fail you are the only one responsible and every little step is needed towards the enrichment of your soul as an empowered individual.”
Today, Valeria is a freshman at Virginia Commonwealth University of the Arts in Qatar as a freshman. She has always been keen to enhance her knowledge of fashion through a degree in the field. With her business under her belt, she is more determined to ensure its success and getting a university degree, to her, is the best pathway.
