Seth Goldman, co-founder of Honest Tea*, dipped his tea bag into the world of entrepreneurship when he started Honest Tea with one of his Yale Business School professors, Barry Nalebuff. That was way back in 1998 in the kitchen of Seth’s Bethesda, Maryland home. Today, 20+ years later, Seth is a multi-millionaire. Honest Tea is owned by the Coca-Cola company and is sold nationwide in 170,000 retailers and is expanding globally. Recently, Honest Tea released an Honest Sports Drink and various other new delicious options. Seth is also the Executive Chairman of the Board at Beyond Meat, a California-based company dedicated to making plant-based meat products taste, look and smell more like the real thing. Seth graduated from Harvard University with a B.A. in government.

*Seth left Honest Tea in November 2019. He is now the Chief Change Agent at Eat the Change, Co-Founder at PLNT Burger, and remains Chair of the Board at Beyond Meat.
