Last month, FounderMade Discovery East Show took place at Spring Studios. FounderMade is a platform and conference series that’s focused on inspiring and promoting innovative entrepreneurs. The show included panel discussions, keynotes and fireside chats with the most recognized names in consumer brands. The conference centers on the beauty, wellness, and food spaces. It also featured a lounge with over 100 brands: Tohi, Nuut, Sovangy, Squeak, PLNT Blend, Dioxyme, Eboost, The Laundress, and Joolies California Superfruit. I also saw Aquis Prime, Know Foods, Halo Sport, Green Roads, and Higher Mind. Rawmantic, Simple Kneads, Lemon Perfect, Gerig Beauty, Helmm, Intoxicating Beauty, Kusshi, Cle Cosmetics, Codex Beauty, Scentuals, Plus CBDOil, Scentered, Energy Bits, Defunkify, Rosebud, Kin, and so many other brands were also there.
Through the product showcase and panels, I learned about some growing trends. CBD continues to play a role in the wellness arena with brands such as Plus CBDOil, Higher Wellness, and Dixie Brands. Dates are also on the rise as they’re high in antioxidants and fibers; Joolies has whole and pitted dates and a date syrup. Super elixirs can deliver incredible results such as focus, elevated mood, and energy; Halo Sport, Lemon Perfect, Tohi, and Kin are some of the beverages offering these benefits. I enjoyed networking with all of these brands. The innovative thinking behind their products is impressive. Looking forward to next year’s FounderMade Discovery East Show!
