Digital Native Vertical Brand specialized in jewellery.

“I trained in Paris, then came to New York and spent three years making jewelry for the world’s most coveted brands. But I always wondered why individual, inspirational jewelry couldn’t be available more widely. Why wasn’t it possible to deliver the same high quality without the high mark-up? It turns out it was possible. “

A whole meal in a handy form with 100% natural ingredients that meets all your nutritional requirements.

“I’ve been an entrepreneur for a very long time. I was running multiple businesses in real estate and import/export in my early 20s. I never had the time to eat and had very little money to buy healthy food. So it made sense for me to start Feed, to give everyone the choice to have a whole, nutritious meal at an affordable price.”

Même

First beauty brand for women living with cancer.

“When we were both interning at L’Oreal, we realized that we had more than just the beauty industry in common: we had both been touched by cancer. We soon noticed how women kept fighting to maintain their femininity but not one single brand adressed their needs. It became obvious that we needed to build that brand from the ground up. With the help of Eutopia, Pierre Fabre and business angels, we’re proud to say that Même Cosmetics can be found online and in dozens of pharmacies in France. As one of our favorite customers once said: “Doctors take care of the inside, we have to take care of the outside” – “
