Initially, Camilla Olson was a biomedical serial entrepreneur. She successfully founded, obtained funding, and attracted top level management for 3 start-ups. 2 of the 3 companies were large data analytics approaches in the pharma market and had profitable exits for investors through an IPO and early buy-out. She was a VC with Alan Patricof in NY and Palo Alto. Camilla returned to graduate school to learn design and launched her namesake label on the runway of Lincoln Center during NY Fashion Week. After exhausting all possibilities to design for the professional woman Camilla realized there is no channel to reach them; and Savitude was born. TEDx speaker.
