Meet Social Media Entrepreneur, Natalie Zfat

Broadway Performers

Natalie Zfat is a social media entrepreneur and Forbes Contributor who has partnered with some of the most iconic brands in the world, including Facebook, Samsung, LinkedIn and American Express. Zfat's beloved social media community are dreamers, doers and entrepreneurs, from college students to CEOs. When she's not engaging with them, Natalie loves sharing her thought leadership in her Forbes column, and at conferences and universities – so much so that she recently earned her higher education teaching certificate from Harvard in the spring of 2021. (What, like it’s hard?) When she's not on the internet, you can find Natalie out and about with a laptop, diaper bag and strong black coffee in hand.
