Stephanie is a pioneering, creative entrepreneur who specializes in developing sustainable products and brands. Her proven track record in starting, running and rolling out successful global businesses and brands spans 16 years, across both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Presently, Stephanie has founded Mimikai. A new brand of naturally effective insect repellents that will change category norms by turning repellents into a lifestyle brand. Nature is precise and powerful in its ability to keep us healthy; it is a complex, purposeful system that allows us to live side by side without unhealthy side effects. Mimikai draws on this system for inspiration by partnering with North Caroline State University to commercialize their proven method for repelling insects using a patented active ingredient extracted from wild tomato plants formed on the principles of biomimicry.
