Clean beauty pioneer Karen Behnke, Founder of Juice Beauty, has received the Goldman Sachs 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs award.
Set to be honored at the Goldman Sachs Builders + Innovators Summit in Santa Barbara, California, Behnke has been recognised for her commitment to research and innovation in the clean beauty industry.
One of the first wellness entrepreneurs, Behnke dedicated her career to creating clean beauty products via a sustainable business model, creating ‘meaningful change through advanced beauty solutions.’
Behnke said, “As a lifelong serial wellness entrepreneur, this honor not only recognizes me, but our retailer partners, our amazing products and our dedicated employees. I started when women in business weren’t widely accepted and I am proud that I’ve broken barriers not only for women, but in industries that I’ve helped pioneer – from corporate wellness in the early 1980’s to now organic beauty! I set out to radically transform the beauty industry and it is such an honor to be recognized by such a reputable company as Goldman Sachs.
Discussing the accolade, David M. Solomon, Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs, said, “True innovation is built from a diversity of perspectives and experiences. Our Builders + Innovators Summit brings together a collective of impressive future leaders who are striving to drive meaningful change. For 150 years, Goldman Sachs has supported entrepreneurs as they launch and grow their businesses. That’s why we are pleased to recognize Karen Behnke as one of the most intriguing entrepreneurs of 2019.”
