Founder and CEO, Farmgirl Flowers
Christina Stembel always knew she wanted to start a business that would utilize her creativity, solve a real problem, and having the potential to scale big. She dreamed up the idea for Farmgirl Flowers in 2010, quit her job at Stanford University, and launched from her dining room in San Francisco, which housed the company(and her very understanding fiancé!) for 2 years. She’s built Farmgirl from less than $50,000 in self funding into a 75+ person company generating $23 million in annual revenue. She’s not stopping there though – she plans to grow Farmgirl’s annual revenue while creatinga business you’d want to buy from, sell to, and work for — because she believes it’s just the right thing to do.
