Leigh Rawdon is CEO and Co-Founder of Tea Collection, which creates children’s clothes and supports The Global Fund for Children. She and her co-founder wanted to build a brand that is sustainable, customer-focused, design-driven, and devoted to corporate social responsibility. They now have 80 employees and have been recognized for the last six years in Inc Magazine’s “Inc 5000” list of America’s fastest growing private companies as well the San Francisco Business Times lists of fastest growing companies and largest women owned companies in the Bay Area.
Leigh received her MBA from Harvard Business School and taught entrepreneurship as a lecturer at Stanford Graduate School of Business. She always felt compelled to be an entrepreneur. “When I was a little kid, I would make baked goods and sell them door-to-door, and, as a teenager, I started a helium balloon delivery business. I always had little businesses going. I would orchestrate musical performances and fun events and sell tickets. I’m really humbled by and proud of what Tea is in the world. We found our voice around curiosity and discovering the world. We want to make the foreign more familiar one t-shirt and one catalog at a time. I think it is a great success to touch families and reach kids in such a way.”
