Villy Wang had a crazy dream: to create a new kind of social enterprise that helps kids who, like her, grew up in the projects. Raised by an immigrant single mother in NYC, Villy’s desire to tell her Mom’s story forged a passion for using digital media arts to capture stories untold and to create social change. Leveraging her impressive 25+year background in banking, law, education, media, arts, and nonprofit management, Villy and her team at BAYCAT have created a direct path from education to employment for the those historically underrepresented in media while supplying nonprofits and community benefits partners the ability to tell stories that make a positive social impact in their community.
Villy received her double B.A. in Engineering and Economics from Brown University, J.D. degree from Northwestern Law, and her teaching credential from SF State University. She is also President of the SF Film Commission.
