Rhys Powell Speaks at B Inspired, Portland

Is an entrepreneur’s success measured only by a company’s profits? Rhys Powell, founder of Red Rabbit, tells how he found super-happiness in a new definition of success. Watch the inspiring speech here.

Rhys Powell says memories of growing up in the Bahamas inspired him to quit his equity-trading job and launch his healthy-school-lunch venture, Red Rabbit, in 2005. There, every fruit and vegetable was picked ripe to be eaten immediately. Since 2005 Rhys has grown the company from just a few neighborhood schools to more than 150 throughout New York City. Rhys is a 2013 Crains 40 under 40, a recipient of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Awards and MIT graduate with a degree in Computer Science.
