Meet a Mentor: Julia Pimsleur
Documentary producer & language-software CEO helps new entrepreneurs
I’ve been so fortunate to have many business mentors over the years. As a member of EO Accelerators, a mentoring group for entrepreneurs, I’ve had the privilege to learn from their head chair Julia Pimsleur. She’s the cofounder and CEO of Little Pim, makers of interactive software that teaches children language skills. Recently, she invited me to come on board as the EO New York Chapter‘s Communications Chair. She’s writing a book about women entrepreneurs and I’m already learning so much from her leadership. Thank you, Julia!
Julia is the Founder and CEO of Little Pim and the former President of Big Mouth Productions, a documentary production company that produced award-winning films airing on PBS, HBO, and Cinemax. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Cinema Studies from Yale University and an M.F.A. from the French National Film School. She is fluent in French and speaks some Italian, Spanish, and German. Her father was Dr. Paul Pimsleur, the renowned language professor, whose revolutionary audio teaching method made him a household name in foreign language instruction. Julia now sits on the advisory board of the Global Language Project, a non-profit which brings free foreign language classes into underserved public schools. She lives in New York with her husband and two young boys.
