"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" TV star turned entrepreneur Sarah Michelle Gellar rang the Nasdaq closing bell from its Entrepreneurial Center in San Francisco Wednesday.
Gellar was promoting her Santa Monica startup Foodstirs, a subscription service that provides organic baking mixes and recipe kits.
The center was also celebrating members of the first class of entrepreneurs from its Milestone Makers, a mentoring program for startups.
Gellar told the students that founding her own company made her appreciate how difficult it is to be an entrepreneur.
"If you think auditioning is hard, going in and asking people for money is even harder." When asked if her presence at Nasdaq foreshadowed a potential public offering for her company, Gellar said, "Oh God no! We're not there yet. Ask me again in a year."
