DISTRICT CONFERENCE 2020
FEATURED COMMUNITY LEADERS
Founder, Honest Tea
Seth Goldman, co-founder of Honest Tea, was continually in search of the perfect drink to quench his thirst after a run. Yet, he found most drinks either too sweet or too tasteless. After discovering his Yale School of Management professor, Barry Nalebuff, also shared a passion for the idea of a less sweet, but flavorful beverage, the seed was planted - and three years later, Honest Tea was born.
