Her charitable initiative BSTRONG has raised millions of dollars for disaster relief efforts around the world.

Kara Goldin knows what it takes to build a business from scratch. She’s the founder of Hint, the leading unsweetened flavored water. Hint was inspired by Kara’s own health journey, when she kicked her diet soda habit by turning to fruit infused water.

Kara is a former tech executive at AOL, host of the podcast The Kara Goldin Show and author of Undaunted. She’s been named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business and to Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs list.
