Building Capacity In People.
Sarah Beth Aubrey
Founder | CEO
Entrepreneurial at heart, at 26 I launched a retail meat business, and at 30 a grant-writing firm. I have since sold both businesses to investors. As the former CEO of Prosperity Ag, LLC, I wrote over 300 successful grants in 39 states, yielding nearly $100 million in funding. After selling the grant-writing business, I knew it was time to launch a consultancy that centered on developing people and their potential.
I work in several ways to help clients achieve results including with one-on-one executive coaching, by facilitating peer groups, or by leading boards through change-based planning initiatives.
As a speaker and workshop leader, I emphasize personal accountability and process improvement. Clients work with me to facilitate professional assessment tools for the creation of custom small group and individual training needs, and to design qualitative market research programs that support a better understanding of your customer or employee needs.
I was an Adjunct Faculty member at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and have designed and taught curriculum for graduate courses on entrepreneurship. The Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ) named me to 2013’s 40 Under 40 list of young professionals to watch and in 2015 I was honored as a member of Vance Publishing’s 40 under 40 in Agriculture.
Jasmine comes from a varied background of industries including 4-H Extension Office Assistant, Barnes & Noble, graduation supply manufacturer, and freelance copyeditor, and her love of learning new technology and industries has earned the nickname “Jane of All Trades.”
As the marketing manager for Sarah Beth Aubrey and brands, Jasmine brings together the graphic design, web layout, collateral pieces, copywriting, editing, and social media management to the company with a bubbly personality and can-do attitude.
Jasmine and her husband, Dave, live in Indianapolis with their cat.
