In this issue we meet the female founders who are making a huge impact in 2020, profiling several diverse and innovative female leaders across the world today.
Supporting more women in leadership positions remains ever critical, and we have dedicated this issue to the female entrepreneurs who are innovating across industries, fighting for change and staying one step ahead of the competition.
We spend time with Shara Ticku of C16 Biosciences, who is making bio-based palm oil, a fully traceable and sustainable product that could change the face of the beauty industry. Over in Rwanda we check out Cesta Collective, the mission-based brand making a difference with their hand-woven luxury baskets, and in New York we find out how big bakery Levain got so… well… big.
We also meet two sets of sisters who have built their businesses together. In LA, Bunny and Taran Ghatrora set up self-care company Blume, making organic period products and creating a safe place for young girls to discuss puberty issues. And in Brooklyn, Corinna and Theresa Williams show us around their laundromat and cafe Celsious, creating a welcome alternative to the often mundane and uninvited spaces we usually associated with coin-operated wash services.
Elsewhere we address the top-five things you should know if another company copies your product or service, visit six tasty food pop ups around the world and look at three great brands who are completely transforming the department store model.
