In 2009 Talia Mashiach founded Eved, which offers cloud-based sourcing, ecommerce and management solutions for the meetings and events industry. The company’s name is derived from the Hebrew word for service.
“We have a marketplace where individual planners within a corporation can go in and find meeting and event suppliers from all around the globe,” Mashiach told Blue Sky. “In addition, we have enterprise software that we provide to corporations that is a complete procure-to-pay solution. We also have an operating platform that we created for suppliers in the meeting and event category.”
Mashiach is a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization, a board member of the Illinois Holocaust Museum and a board member for the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center. She was also inducted into the Chicagoland Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame.
Mashiach holds a degree from Loyola University Chicago Quinlan School of Business. She lives with her husband Sam and their children.
