BEHIND THE COMPANY
CEO/Founder: Nicole Scott
What one book, podcast, newsletter, etc. do you recommend to other entrepreneurs? Why?
"Presence" by Amy Cuddy and "Start with Why" by Simon Sinek. Both of these books are about connecting to yourself and to what you deeply care about -- and how these actions create better and more meaningful connections to others and ultimately, creating deep value through products and businesses.
What is your company's secret sauce?
Cybele Microbiome's proprietary platform creates natural products in 16X less time than conventional manufacturing, inducing your microbiome to create all-natural, long-lasting, vegan, environmentally friendly, and high-margin skincare products.
What inspired you to start/run this company?
I wanted to make products that could deeply help human health and wellness.
What's the best entrepreneurial advice you've received?
Content AND delivery of messaging are important. If you can't connect to others, through your "why" -- no one will see "what" you are doing.
What sets your company culture apart?
We care deeply about technology AND the customer.
