Introducing Funk Futures' Operations Manager and Technical Advisor

Updated: Jun 7

Operations Manager, Minah Webb:

Minah is the Operations Manager for Funk Futures with prior experience as a Project Manager and a Social Media Coordinator straight out of college. Her approach to management is more focused on understanding human behavior and leveraging people's strengths to their fullest potential.

Minah has a vast skill set and is known by many to be “Jill of all trades''. In any position she finds herself in, she exceeds all expectations. In 2018, during her User Experience and Design internship with Build a Better Book, she had no experience with engineering, but had a vast background in elementary education. Through her time in her internship, she was able to learn and successfully print 3D textiles for blind children. She ultimately went on to lead a seminar on the importance of texture in relation to how blind children navigate their surroundings and comprehend important information. She also went on to publish a fully immersive book aimed at helping young blind children accurately identify animals.

She is a Colorado local who recently relocated to Southern California with a newfound love for the west coast. Minah holds a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Business from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She spends her free time with her cat, and working on various fiber art projects.
