Bonnie Howland is 22 years old and grew up in North Canterbury. She spent one year at university in Auckland before leaving to start a beauty company called indigo & iris, a social enterprise makeup company that donates 50% of all profit to charities working in the Pacific Islands. Running her business has taken her all over the world - New York, Kenya, Italy, Vanuatu and more.
With no business experience, she went from googling business plans to raising 130k in pre-sales of indigo & iris’ first product - levitate mascara and securing retail partnerships with some of the worlds biggest companies.
