Katerina Schneider

Katerina Schneider’s career began in investment banking and she later found herself in Los Angeles’ start-up scene where she’s led digital strategy and high-level technology partnerships for musicians and brands. However, when Schneider became pregnant, she started becoming aware of her surroundings and later cleaned her home of products that contained ingredients that could potentially be harmful, including prenatal vitamins she was taking. This sparked the idea to create, Ritual, the reimagined vitamin made with no unnecessary ingredients and features nutrients in their best forms.

Since it’s launch, the health tech company has recently launched an Apple Watch app and has plans to release another multivitamin product designed for women over the age of 50. As the company grows, they’ve been able to attract top talent from major companies and have been named as one of LinkedIn’s top start-ups in 2019.

Rachel Drori

This founder and CEO harnessed her skills working as a customer-centric marketing executive, and used them to launch a solution that fixed her daily challenge. Rachel Drori has raised $43 million with over three rounds of funding and has caught the attention of investors like Serena Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow, Shaun White, and Bobby Flay with Daily Harvest, the online meal delivery service that sells frozen smoothies, bowls, and soups. Drori found it hard to incorporate healthy fruits and vegetables into her busy life and built Daily Harvest from the ground up and turned it into one of the fastest-growing consumer brands in the United States.

After fundraising while 9-months are pregnant, Drori realized that she had to prove that her business had everything it takes to be successful and take away any space for subjectivity. Recently, Daily Harvest sold its one-millionth smoothie and hired its 100th team member in 2019 and expanded into a new HQ in Tribeca.
